January 28, 2012 - New York, N.Y. - The Deal's media and telecommunications editor-at-large Richard Morgan conducted an in-depth interview with Warner Music Group's Edgar Bronfman Jr., his first since the announcement of the sale of the company, which Variety.com referenced in a related piece published today on their website.
Richard's interview focused on Bronfman's major deals throughout his career, specifically that of Warner Music Group. The Variety.com article used one particular excerpt about the future of the music business and his own plans post-sale: "For now, I'll view that future from the perch of a director of Warner Music Group."
