Viacom Launched A Blog, Yo
In a blatant ripoff of SomethingBurning.com (kidding, Mark), Viacom launched a blog this week. Surprise — it’s actually freakin’ good. I work here, yes, but it’s true. Look at the blogs of other corporate monoliths — they blow!
Viacom’s blog is already posting some fantastic stuff from the likes of MTV & VH1’s Van Toffler, Viacom International’s Bob Bakish, Logo’s Lisa Sherman, Will Ferrell, Jon Stewart, Fran Drescher and more. There’s even already a pretty cool behind-the-scenes look at Spike’s new Mixed Martial Arts show — “MMA: Uncensored Live.” Thank you to Daina Amorosano for your kind post on my appearance at the McGraw Hill Media Summit last week.
Check out Viacom International Media Networks President, Bob Bakish, on K-Pop and connectivity:

There’s even a post about Scratch’s incredible friend and inspiring colleague, Millie Peartree, who just appeared on VH1’s Morning Buzz show:
Get More: Big Morning Buzz Live
Mark Jafar has somehow worked this into a blog people are actually using. Insights, news, behing-the-curtain stuff, there’s so much here that otherwise wouldn’t surface, and it’s giving people a chance to see the breadth and depth of work across the company. I hope you’ll check it out. It’s so not easy to pull off a corporate blog that doesn’t suck.
