President & CEO
Michael started Ish Entertainment in spring 2008 after six years at VH1, the last four of them running programming. During that time, ratings more than doubled and revenues more than tripled. Before that, he was a web entrepreneur (“inside.com” http://www.inside.com) and magazine editor (Spin, New York, Esquire).
He also writes for the Atlantic Monthly, where he is a contributing editor, New York Magazine and the New York Times, among other publications, about technology and its impact on culture and society.
