As Executive Vice President (and shareholder) of short-lived Broadway Television Network, established in 2000 as a Pay-Per-View network dedicated to presenting shows presented under the banner, “Live from Broadway, One Night Only“. Clash of vision (and personality): the board wanted PPV special events, I wanted to stream through membership and sell downloads ongoing. I lost the battle, and left a few months later. History proved me right.
