Last night I had the honor of speaking at the LA Food Bank Charity Event. I spoke about my plans for the Future of Rolling Stone. (also stay tuned for a surprise ending!)
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
FULL TRANSCRIPT OF SPEECH
Thank You Scott.
Good Evening Ladies and Gentleman and thanks for having me at this really wonderful and very funny event… I’ll tell ya - The LA Food bank is where I keep all my food. why just the other day I made a twenty-five pound deposit of corn and flour… just a little joke.
(pause for laughter)
Seriously, It’s a great cause and I’m really excited to be here with you tonight.
Two days ago I replaced Jann Wenner as editor-in-chief of Rolling Stone Magazine. I can only imagine that those familiar with my work in television and films were, shall we say surprised at the news. It’s a position that frankly I didn’t even see in my future, even though I’ve been a long time subscriber since the age of 13.
(play to audience: any RS subscribers out there??)
