5 Women Who Could Replace Jon Stewart

February 11, 2015  |  Media Week  |  No Comments

Sometime before the end of 2015, the face of The Daily Show will change, and the show's gender should probably change, too. Jon Stewart's 17-year tenure on the series could come to an end as early as July, or so the comedian announced last night during an emotional monologue. The show has grown into a major force, not just in comedy but in news as well. So who belongs in the fake anchor's chair? We asked Doug Herzog, president of the Viacom Entertainment Group, what he thought about the future of The Daily Show, and he was (of course) a little cagey. But he did say hiring a woman to take over was a distinct possibility. "The Daily Show endures," he said.

Know thyself, said the ancient Greeks. Cheri Eisen, Fusion's head of human resources, thinks that advice is on the nose, even though Socrates and Plato weren't talking about wading into 2015's ultracompetitive job market. Eisen has a number of tips for job seekers ahead of Feb. 11's Mediabistro Job Fair in New York. Among her recommendations: Never pick up a call while in an interview and do tidy that Facebook page (no beer bongs, please). Fusion, a partnership between Disney/ABC and Univision, will participate in the sold-out event alongside media giants like AOL, CBS, Cond

Jon Stewart Is Leaving The Daily Show

February 11, 2015  |  Media Week  |  No Comments

Jon Stewart is leaving Comedy Central's The Daily Show. It's a little hard to fathom, frankly. Stewart is as familiar among young consumers of news as any of the broadcast anchors—probably more so in many cases—and his brand of media criticism has changed the face of the journalism industry over the course of the last 16 years. And now he's going away.

An Exclusive Tour of Spike Lee’s Office at His Brooklyn Agency

February 10, 2015  |  Media Week  |  No Comments

When the old-guard shop DDB wanted its own Spike Lee joint, it gave the filmmaker an agency. Since 1997, SpikeDDB has been creating campaigns for big-name clients like Chevrolet, Cadillac, HBO and Pepsi. Just like with his films, Lee aims to create ads that are thought provoking and culturally significant. His boutique agency is tucked away in a downtown Dumbo, Brooklyn loft space, in an unassuming building shared with Etsy and HopStop. The office is warm and inviting, with framed movie posters lining the walls above rows of creative staff. Behind a glass wall in the back of the office is where Lee spends many days working. Upon closer inspection, we found a well-appointed space full of personal touches made by Lee himself that provide a backdrop for creating advertising genius.
