Doug Herzog – A Basic Guy

Doug Herzog was formerly the President of Viacom’s Music and Entertainment Group, where he oversaw Comedy Central, MTV, VH1, Spike, TVLand, and Logo. I worked with Doug many times over the years. In this episode, we discuss the state of Cable Television, the origins of South Park, and the early years of MTV. Doug is currently co-hosting the BASIC! Podcast. Each week Basic! takes you behind the scenes of that glorious time in pop culture when MTV’s ‘The Real World,’ ESPN’s ‘SportsCenter’ and AMC’s ‘Breaking Bad’ made cable TV a must-have for every American home.
