'Tis the season... for our annual recap of the Year in Entertainment Biz Headlines over at KCRW's "The Business." The Hollywood Reporter's Matt Belloni and I join host Kim Masters for our usual roundup of what happened over the past year -- and what's coming next:
This year saw media companies aiming to stay big or get even bigger. There’s the highly likely AT&T-Time Warner merger. And while there was talk of CBS and Viacom combining, that deal is off for now. At the box office, Disney wins movies. And Netflix aims for world domination.
Of course, there was also this year’s presidential election, which crossed paths with the entertainment industry like never before. At Fox, Megyn Kelly brought down the seemingly invincible Roger Ailes. And following #OscarsSoWhite, movies still try to get more diverse in front of and behind the camera.
