Viacom missed out, now we are paying for it

It's a shame when anyone gets laid off. But after 15+ years I have seen how this company works. Sumner and his over-paid minions missed the boat BIG time over the years and we're all paying for it. Channels will either get sold or a big video or... read more

"Our culture is back..."

Really Shari? You mean the culture that lays off valuable employees due to inept strategy and vision? The culture that is fat at the top with lots of bloated egos and nothing to back it up? Or is it the SVPs and EVPs who got where they are because... read more

remaining VH1

Basically got rid of most of the remaining VH1 staff from the previous leadership. This is what frightened leaders do at MTVN now. Wouldn't be surprised if they continue to combine the networks until only the barest of staff and yes peoples remain.
