Fordham Business Students Take Part in PBS ShowContact: Bob Howe
“That’s Entertainment!” an episode of PBS’s CEO Exchange filmed in cooperation with Fordham University’s Graduate School of Business, will air on Saturday, July 8, 2006, at 2 p.m. on WNET New York, Channel 13.
More than 300 Fordham students packed the show’s live taping to see media giants Doug Morris, chairman and CEO of Universal Music Group, and Bob Wright, chairman and CEO of NBC Universal, in April. The students had an opportunity to question the CEOs about their management styles, music and video piracy, and the competition for viewers between broadcast and cable channels. CEO Exchange, hosted by CNN’s Jeff Greenfield, is a series of conversations with high-profile chief executives, taped live at prestigious business schools around the country.
Founded in 1841, Fordham is the Jesuit University of New York, offering exceptional education distinguished by the Jesuit tradition to approximately 15,800 students in its five undergraduate colleges and its six graduate and professional schools. It has residential campuses in the Bronx, Manhattan and Tarrytown, and the Louis Calder Center Biological Field Station in Armonk, N.Y.
