What a Bed in Tibet Told One Owner about Sports Future (Audio)

Mandalay Entertainment Chairman Peter Guber, who is part owner of the Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Dodgers and Los Angeles Football Club, discusses a host of issues related to the business of sports, including what it takes--and what it means-- to forge an emotional connection with the fans. He also discusses where the growth opportunities are in sports (hint: think population centers and media scale), as well as what he’s learned from the movie business. Guber is co-executive chairman of Axiomatic Gaming, which owns Team Liquid. He also touches on virtual reality and how it can reshape the sports industry.

Guber has a long history in the entertainment industry. Prior to Mandalay, he was chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment, chairman of Polygram Entertainment, co-founder of Casablanca Records & Filmworks and president of Columbia Pictures.
