Casey Wasserman Acquires Bay To Breakers Race From AEG
WMG CEO Casey Wasserman has acquired the Bay to Breakers 12k race from AEG for an undisclosed amount. Wasserman today will meet with a contingent of S.F. officials and race participants to "listen to thoughts about the event while trying to assuage concerns that the new ownership group would try to crack down" on the race's "atmosphere of party and whimsy." Wasserman: "Our job as stewards of this tradition is to put the fun back in and ramp up the fun quotient" (S.F. CHRONICLE, 10/2).
