Ken Auletta doesn’t just write the story, he writes the story behind the story. This bestselling author and New Yorker columnist has been profiling the powerful people shaping the internet, social media, television, Hollywood, newspapers, publishing, and technology for decades. Last week, with the resignation of Fox News chairman Roger Ailes, Auletta has been seen on CNBC and MSN discussing the rise and fall of a media giant. Having profiled both Ailes and Rupert Murdoch, few journalists have a better understanding of who they are than Auletta.
Auletta is a keen observer of the inner-workings of media, understanding where it’s been, where it is, and where it’s headed — all the while maintaining an unassuming and grounded take on the forces that move our world.
With a new book on advertising on the way, now is the time to bring the “James Bond of the media world” to your audience. The author of Googled and Backstory: The Inside Business of News, Auletta speaks on such topics as Disruption, Leadership, and Tech Companies like Google, Facebook, and Apple.
