Ross Johnson profiles Scott Greenstein, the ex-Miramax exec and Barry Diller protégé who brokered Howard Stern's lucrative deal to move onto pay radio, in today's New York Times. Greenstein sounds impressed with himself.
"It feels like the biggest media personality deal ever; it feels like the biggest radio deal ever; and it feels like it has the nerve center of America paying attention to media deals," Mr. Greenstein said last Friday.
He's called a polarizing figure in Hollywood for his aggressive ways. The story also lets Greenstein and author Peter Biskind exchange a few volleys over the accuracy of the latter's book, Down and Dirty Pictures: Miramax, Sundance, and the Rise of Independent Film.
