I write this from a cafe down the street from Rolling Stone Headquarters…
About 15 minutes ago I was escorted out of the building after being fired without explanation or reason although I can assume it had a lot to do with my public announcement of the TV Guide merger, which I guess is now off the table????
During my brief tenure as EIC of Rolling Stone I think I had a chance to do some really interesting things. I hope whoever replaces me takes my plan, considers my ideas and fully implements them. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
It’s way too early to tell you whats next for me as I’m still in total shock over this firing. Although I believe i was FIRED WITHOUT CAUSE I still want to thanks Jann and Time Warner for giving me the opportunity.
Have a great holiday and happy new year,
