WHAT'S NEXT FOR HUIZENGA?
Published October 4, 1994
In this week's ADVERTISING AGE, Diane Mermigas reports on Wayne Huizenga's plans following last Friday's merger between Blockbuster Entertainment and Viacom. Huizenga: "People think I have something else up my sleeve, but I don't ... I can't work for someone else. I am not an employee, I'm an entrepreneur. ... I like the entertainment industry. It's a lot of fun. While there aren't too many voids left to fill in the entertainment industry, there are still opportunities." Huizenga will remain in south Florida, continue to oversee his assets -- including the Dolphins, Panthers, and Marlins -- but "doesn't expect to expand his sports interests" (AD AGE, 10/3 issue).
