"Ah, so very much to me. In the same vein I was in with Nashville. I came in a ship from 1967 and I am already came to town for I thought I would be working. Video, which I found out. That's not my thing. I'm not a studio musician, I'ma laugh performer, but Union devices decided that I didn't have the right to do that. And I was not making a lot of head last time, few stations here and and you know, but Bob Johnston, there's the guided, probably towns who was producing Bob Dylan. He had Bob was coming down to do a album that eventually ended up being national Skylab and I wanted at such a big thing, and I told Bob Johnson Bob, If there's any way you can just so I can always say the rest of my life that I actually played a session with the great Bob Dylan.

"Headed toward using to hub cities to play this stuff out without fans that will be a difficult transition. penguins forward Brandon Tanith spoke about that this week, but said that one of the ways the players will get over. It will be their desire to get back what they've all come to understand what they've really been missing during the NHL Pause. I. Think obviously there's going to be an adjustment period but I. Think you know the League in our organizations are are are working. Things through right now into a great job When when we resume and I think you know that's as the main focus. Here is to get back to the game that we all love when when things are are right. Right for us to do that. Obviously, there's there's more important things going on right now in the world, and that's everyone's health and safety, but at the same time once we're able to be back in and being the environment of the locker room with all the guys and be be playing the game that we love so much. I think there's going to be. An added enthusiasm and love for what we've missed over the past couple of months. I think that is going to drive us a little more. I mean obviously it's going to be tough and a little at times stepping back on the ice, and and having those expectations, but I think working through that that adversity is GonNa, make you better through all this and I'm sure everyone is really excited and edging back on the ice. Makes a great point, but I wonder if the locker room will be the same. We've heard a lot from major league baseball about how they're going to need an additional locker room for each team. At wherever they end up playing. If they end up playing again because they've got a social distance, the locker room and lockers six feet apart, and they're not big enough as they as they exist, I wonder if that scenario will carry over to the NHL. Well. By virtue of how they have to sit in the NHL there. They have to sit close on the bench so. Sitting close in the locker I'm not sure how much that matters, and it's not easy to just pull up to the rink in your gear. Get Out of the car and put your skates over your shoulder going. Baseball a little bit easier to do that, but can you get dressed at home and drive to the rink in full uniform? Those guys did that as kids. Mom Mom. Drop them off and put the skates on. But hopefully hockey specs sooner rather than later in the meantime. We've got what used to be. At and T. sports that's got game. Six of the nineteen ninety-one. Stanley Cup final tonight. The penguins at the North Stars. We've also got the radio broadcast on our brother station one. Oh, five nine, the X. throughout this process of. At and T. and the ex rebroadcast re airing these old games for penguins, history Josh gets off has been able to interview a lot of the people involved at the time and the hall of Famer Mike Lang. Talked with Josh extensively about this nineteen ninety-one Penguins team which. You know the championships have piled up now, but this one was the first one. And the one that Hey if if you grew up kind of when I did. The thought of the penguins went into Stanley. Couples like going to the moon. If you were paying attention, you just hope they didn't go bankrupt and they had a team the next year. That was the goal just to be able to be involved, and for these guys to make it all the way to the Stanley Cup, final and win it miraculous on a lot of levels. Mike Lang talked with. Josh gets off about the influence of the head. Coach Badger Bob Johnson. who showed up as a different kind of guy and took some getting used to, but eventually everybody came around. He was like Bob Johnson was like no other coach, penguins or any player that play the game. Mock it seeing. then I say that from a standpoint. There wasn't a negative word in his approach to the game, and the players were kind of like. Is this for real? They were just stunned seriously in the first couple of weeks. as it went along, but they were finally realized. This guy was for real I mean he would do things that. No, other coach done I can remember them. Just I mean this is so stupid and it's so simple. But if you think about hockey in those days. And, maybe when they came out of escape. To Skate base gate him one direction and they were skated around the ice until they loosened up. In Badger which stop them and midsection. Make them go the other way. He says because you're in a game. You are going the other way at times, so he would make them circle back and do the rink. The other way and everybody would just look like, but they continue to do it, and he just became a friend of theirs and the the most. Notable thing that I remember about Bob. Johnson as He took everybody under his wing. if, you played for him. He would always put his arm around you and if you plan and he didn't have in the lineup. He. Would just simply tell you I'm going to need some day. I'm on a nature someday and that just sent. That never happened in hockey, but just didn't happen. Gene Call. You're saying how unusual Bob Johnson was in one of the stories. He told to illustrate that was that. Bob Johnson was like walking out of the hospital across the street from the arena one time and he's like what the? Badger everything right. He's like I was just getting to Sandwich. Great sandwiches over there you go. Great Sandwiches. Yeah, there's a million Badger Bob Johnson stories, but Beds are GonNa win that First Cup tonight on eighteen sports at the boy that was a fun team and I was talking to you guys yesterday a little bit about what jumped out at me from watching the game Wednesday night. And I talked about lemieux, aggressive and combative. He was and the arena, and what that looked like it I forgot to mention our buddy, the old to nine or man, he could fly. I forgot. The extent of his wheels. I mean you you remember. Is that kind of glue player that could do a lot of different things and fit in a lot of different places and an effort guy, a hustle guy and a character guy, but man can escape. Pirates announced furloughs beginning on June the first yesterday. Travis Williams said in a statement quote deeply about all of our employees and understand the impact. This will have on them. These decisions are very difficult, but are necessary for us to endure this crisis and emerges strongest possible when we're able to resume normal operations, we look forward to welcoming our employees back to work. At that time, nobody in baseball operations will be furloughed. It's affecting some people in the business department and case. You guys were wondering if there'd be another Michael.

Going to be a nine nine part series detailing his nine trips to the Super Bowl. And I guess they're not counting on him getting there this year.

Obama pushes Trump’s button on the economy and Trump responds
"President trump is fighting back at former president Barack Obama who's taking credit for the trump economy Obama tweeted Corey Levin years ago today near the bottom of the worst recession in generations I sign the recovery act paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history end of quote president trump's national press secretary respond it quote president trump reversed everything failed obamacare economic policy and with that reverse the floundering Obama Biden economy Obama and Biden orchestrated the worst economic recovery in modern history end of quote let's explore the showing that what you hear over and over and over again is how Obama laid the foundation for the trump economy but for the wonderful things that Obama did lord knows where we would be may I remind you of some of the things that so called experts like mark Cuban the owner of the Dallas Mavericks and experts like Paul Krugman the economist who also writes a column for The New York Times both predicted economic disaster in the event the president trump came in great to have you with us and let's put politics aside we're just talking about this notion on the street that seems to be early prime one out there that the trump presidency could actually hurt stocks what you're calling for though is very dramatic and drastic a fifty percent decline over his presidency would be four years so let's get through the the back of the envelope calculations here how do you get there it it would definitely fall yes for two reasons I mean you saw it when they call me email came out with a with the market and and so trump's temperament which I think is a significant issue for the market whenever you have a clue I would handicap if trump wins I would handicap the the likelihood that the probability that he would say something stupid and offensive during a four year term multiple times at a hundred percent because markets were reassured Marley Clinton was doing okay it markets markets would be very destabilized by conflict for instance particularly as if the on likely event happens and trump wins you will see a market crash of his star performer proportions I thank them for causing it it's made for the incoming trump was to be elected it would be a rise in on the stock market arrives Russian until that I mean I I have my trumpet John in the event Donald wins I have no doubt my mind the the market thanks and now the reason this is relevant is because Donald Trump of course a plan to reverse obamacare lower taxes lower corporate taxes those are not the kind of thing for the point was promising so therefore they assume that by doing those things he was going to crash the economy I find it fascinating that Obama and the Democrats taking credit for the economy more with a set up that the trouble due to economy and how many times have you heard them say that president trump has been quote undoing Obama's legacy even doing a bomber's legacy how do you take credit for having undone his legacy left wing black host of shows on be on PBS and on NPR Tavis smiley in twenty sixteen I'm sad to report that in every single leading economic category black America has lost ground over the last decade in every major economic category we've lost ground to this book comes out he said in two thousand six so clearly this book was out before mama shows up to win two thousand eight so the book was never about Barack Obama being this ten year update it's not about him now but it is true that doubt over these last ten years most of that on his watch black America has lost ground in the major economic indicator categories that is true given the credit this is B.

"You know, all of a sudden, we had to start doing gender Lee reports, and dealing with the SEC and all of that. So, you know it wasn't like you fury him. You know, I'm I'm made it and I'm done. And it's like, oh, this is very nice. And we didn't have the executives didn't have stock ahead of time. We got stock as part of the offering. So we didn't have the same success feeling that Bob Johnson did. Because he owned the company he and TCI and John Malone. And H B O had a small piece of the company also. So, so I'm sure they felt it. A lot more than we did. I remember having to get back to work that day. And okay. And we had some hiccups along the way learning to be a publicly traded company, but it was it was so exciting. And I just remember more than anything else, the excitement of the people at the new York Stock Exchange there was one guy. I can't remember his name, but he was the only African American male with a seat on the New York stock. I think his name was Harold, duly just came back to me. And he called me like the week before. And he said, I would be so proud to stand with you all on the day you go public, and I mean things like that. I you know, had never thought about, but he was the only black man the only black person who had a seat on the new York Stock Exchange and he wanted to be there with us that day. So it was it was an exciting time. And that is really exciting. You talked about the fact that you end up in the COO role because someone else was looking out for you. Yes. Was saying good job right after you were there. Was there a hunger to continue climbing to get to that CEO role? At what point was it sort of, in your consciousness of I like to be the CEO of this company? It was almost immediate because he had never had a COO before. So the day it was announced that I had that position. Everyone started treating me like the heir apparent they really did. And I didn't realize it was going to be that way. But everyone said, oh, Bob's preparing to leave at some point. And that's both good and bad. Yeah. In anything, exactly. Was it was good and bad. You know, it was good because I could start the training process to become CEO now, I think how long did he stay after that a while, and Viacom eventually acquired BT's? So that was another. For mation oh corporate event. But during that time I had there were other parts of the business, I had to learn. I mean, because I was general counsel, I knew the legal side, I knew a lot of the business side. But I didn't know anything about advertising programming or you know, I knew a lot about affiliate sales because those are huge contracts for us. But there are other parts of the business, I had to learn and so he gave me several years to be able to do that. And people if started calling me, you know, p our partners people were doing business with, if they couldn't get a hold of Bob. So it was a good. It was a good training period before Bob Johnson left. And so, you know, I, I'd have to say I did have my eye on it because everyone treated me like that. And in terms of what you needed to learn a long way. What's the most complicated thing that you have to learn on your path to CEO? Wow. That's an interesting question. I think. There's a there's a bit of a learning curve, depending on how much of the company you've seen before then. But I think the real thing you have to learn is how to manage people, and that's not something they teach you in any business school. Maybe a little bit in business coupe, not Iran. Yeah, it takes experience and learning how to motivate executives and how to put together a team.

"I'm on the board of Twitter and Mary at president board from Alvin Ailey, I just came from the air. So I'm on af I go on and on. So I'm doing a lot most days you're doing a lot of people in actual jobs and back to your point. I've always been a multitask. So it's it's fine. But you know, I don't think I'll do anything fulltime again. But it it's, you know, I want to write a book really do some speaking gauge me. Yeah. I think I have a story to tell us. Yeah. So I'm thinking about that. So that those kind of things are exciting. Yeah. What's the toughest lesson? You've had to learn along the way. The toughest lesson. I've had to learn is to listen to your own voice. And that you know, a lot comes from what I talked about about being a CEO early on. It's finding my own voice and not being afraid to to speak up. And you know, I think the law and a little bit is a protection because you know, as you know, I gotta look it up. This is what it says. So I think a business woman and learning that you know, you have to make decisions and yet to find your own voice. And was there a turning point where you realize the importance of that? Or was there almost like a negative experience? That led you to say, I'm not listening to my own voice here, and I need to. Well, I think the experience with the protests about the videos was a turning point because you know in one ear. I heard Bob Johnson say on his way out don't ruin the business model on this side. I had a programming budget that was sixty five percent music videos, but I had. Already promised the audience. I was going to change that. So I had to figure out how to keep the company profitable and move away from videos that shouldn't have been the main thing we did anyway. And I love music, I'm a big music fan. So, you know, vice a little Wayne right now. I'd say Hello a chance the rapper. It's not like, I'm not a hip hop fan. But you know, I really knew we had to do other kinds of programming, and and I knew had to be high quality and all of that took some guts because you know, we didn't really have the budget for it early on. So it's a slow process, and we took a lot of criticism along the way. But now young people come up to me in the street and say, thank you. Thank you for what you did for BT. Thank you for what you did for the culture, which just gives me chills because that's so much bigger than be in. Thank you for for leading the way. Way. So, you know, listening to my voice in making those decisions in in from my own perspective was was all I could do. And I think that's what a good leader does. And then when you believe in yourself, and you find your own voice than others will follow you because they know, you know, you have the best inches a company hard. You know, you're trying to do the best thing, and they will come along. And I you know, I really felt good there. So many points. I mentioned the new York Stock Exchange another high point on my career was we we had a show called the game. Yes. Yes. Twenty fourteen that that premier. Yes. That we took over the CW at the CWA got a million five it was tough to even convinced CBS to let us take over the production of it because they were like when we cancelled a show, you know, and we finally did the show been off the air for two years. We put it back. It on bring back the production team cut the cost because we had to and we got eight million viewers the first night. It's still the record holder for the top sitcom debut on cable that day we were high fiving each other like we had won the Super Bowl..
