An Evening with Bob Pittman
The co-founder and programmer who led the team that created MTV, Bob Pittman, is one of the most successful and influential media executives of his time. He has been described as the only media mogul who is also an entrepreneur, and his work in television and music has indelibly influenced what we now call the “MTV Generation.” After launching MTV, which quickly became the most successful cable channel of its time, Pittman oversaw the transformation of Nickelodeon and the launch of Nick at Nite and VH-1. He has been CEO of MTV Networks, AOL Networks, Six Flags Theme Parks, Quantum Media, Century 21 Real Estate, and Time Warner Enterprises. He is now the CEO of Clear Channel Communications, where he is continuing to define the changing media landscape. Pittman has been recognized in Life‘s “Five Original Thinkers of the ’80s,” Advertising Age‘s “50 Pioneers and Visionaries of TV,” and “10 Marketers Who Changed American Culture.” This conversation with Bob Pittman will be moderated by the Museum’s Executive Director, Carl Goodman.
