Channel 33


And the first stories about New York magazine potentially being for sale where or early August. So, you know, if that had been, you know, a germ of, you know, in in his in his head that he might be ready to move on to something else that must have been a huge contributing factors this decision. I think so I mean without knowing I just it seems like this is the time was not you if not you would stick around specifically because of that I mean, you would say, well, I'm gonna see us through or you know, what there's there's and without addressing it at all directly. I think that to me like, I said tells you what you need to know basin things about Adama's Demi or in interesting things to me one is a lot of these other guys you mentioned Graydon Carter and a winter Tina Brown their most larger than life, right, personality wise, or a was he his aura was almost smaller than life. It was like, you know, he was not a off. Wall personality, you cannot imagine him hosting a talk show on HBO if he'd been born at if appeared in his life. It was like keep poured all of his personality into the book itself instead of carrying on as this Rangan tour interview with him for a job one time. And I remember somebody warned me that it's going to be like one of those Socratic seminars like you do in a college philosophy class. Right. And indeed, it was I drawn up this list of story ideas. And he said, you know, and I mentioned what he said that's interesting now now who would write that story. And I offered some names. And why would you pick that person? Right. That story. And I and I mentioned why pick that person he said now, what would the discovery be in that story? And why would that be interesting? And it was this is pulling out of, you know, he did not tell tales about you know, editing. So, you know, Michael Lewis of the New York Times magazine, he wasn't sloughing off stories. He wasn't trying to impress me at all. He was just Neang king. The idea bodily. Outta me. There's a whole like a horror movie. But in a good way, you know, it was just he was pulling it out. And you know, I think that was you know, people who worked for him talked about that a lot. I think he could drive editors and writers nuts by insisting on lots of late in the game changes and edits and and striving for perfection. Yeah. But that was him. And that to me is like, it's it's amazing. And he's talked about in this in this New York Times piece like he he he can he his hobby was the magazine like that was his law. That was every you know, he woke up thinking about it. He went to bed thinking about it. That's what he liked to do. But it's funny. He was just very very very different personality type than a lot of the people. We talk about in that role the other thing, I drove up, you know, we've been hearing a lot about coaching trees like in the NFL the Andy Reid coaching tree in the Bill Belichick coaching tree. Would you like coaching tree? Yes. Please. I sent a few emails. Here's the list. These are people who worked for moss, and then went on to edit something or edit part of something you ready.
