MEL KARMAZIN: IS HE SETTING HIS SIGHTS ON THE BIG CHAIR?
Published March 11, 1998
CBS Station Group Chair & CEO Mel Karmazin is profiled by Alan Deutschman of NEW YORK, who writes that while Michael Jordan holds the titles of CBS Chair & CEO, there is "no doubt that Karmazin is the de facto power at CBS." Wall Street execs also "think it's only a matter of time before Karmazin is the de jure ruler as well." Porter Bibb of Ladenburg, Thalmann: "Mel will not tolerate sharing the power. Michael Jordan will be eaten alive by him." While Karmazin "is known as an intimidating, imperious manager, widely feared by CBS employees, he seems to have the full support of the network's top talent" (NEW YORK, 3/16 issue).
