Michael Liebreich — Future Mayor of London? (Video Interview)

Since I’ve gotten back into my Michael Liebreich interview series, I figured I should get this portion of it up while it’s still ripe. As we wrote last July, rumors were circulating that Michael might run for Mayor of London. Naturally, I was eager to find out if they were unfounded rumors, if he was planning to run, or if it was something in the middle. It was apparently something in the middle.

Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
