In my weekly commentary segment tonight with Lisa Napoli, we talk about media-shy Colorado mogul Phil Anschutz and his local right-hand, Tim Leiweke. They are both featured in a Connie Bruck profile in this week's New Yorker, titled The Man Who Owns L.A., that I introduced this morning. Mark Lacter delved into the NFL angle, the only part of the story that contains any news, earlier today at LA Biz Observed. Most memorable quote from Bruck's story (which is, alas, behind the magazine's pay wall) goes to Steve Soboroff, who says Anschutz "is the most important Angeleno of the last 50 years, and he's not even an Angeleno."
The segment airs on KCRW at 6:44 p.m. and is available to listen to at KCRW.com or on iTunes pretty much now.
