James B. Stewart with Autumn Phillips: Dynasties
Sat, Nov 11 at 2pm
Unscripted, co-authored by James B. Stewart, an account of the media titan Sumner Redstone’s final years (he died aged 97 during Covid), “-is a chronicle of corporate greed, manipulation, misogyny and sexual impropriety on a spectacular scale” (The New York Times). At the peak of his power, Redstone controlled Viacom, Paramount Pictures, CBS, publisher Simon and Schuster and many other companies. It is no surprise that Redstone was one of the models for Succession’s Logan Roy.
James B. Stewart and Autumn Phillips, Editor-In-Chief of the Post and Courier, discuss what media moguls have in common. James B. Stewart is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of 10 books.
