Keach Hagey’s reporting on Sumner Redstone lead her to a book deal.
It also made her an expert on the 95-year-old embattled mogul who maintains control over CBS and Viacom, who has publicly feuded with his children over corporate control, and who once declared that he would live forever.
Hagey’s book, “The King of Content,” was released by Harper Collins in June.
In recent weeks, you may have seen Hagey’s front-page Wall Street Journal stories or heard her interviews on CNBC or NPR about the #metoo moments that took down CBS Chairman Les Moonves and the circumstances surrounding the firing of CBS News Chairman Jeff Fager.
Hagey will talk about Redstone, the intersection of private lives and public markets in family-controlled corporate media, and her journalism career in a public conversation at 7 p.m. Oct. 18 in Carter Hall at the University of Southern Indiana.
She will sign books following the event. Her book will be available for purchase at the event from the USI Campus Store.
The event is free and open to the public.
Sponsored by the Romain College of Business and the College of Liberal Arts.
