They came, they met, they didn’t decide to merge yet. I hear William Morris CEO Jim Wiatt was ”shaking”. He’s angry at how he’s being portrayed during these negotiations. (But, c’mon, what kind of leader doesn’t officially inform his staff until this morning there are merger talks underway even though they’re being played out on my website?) Now even his WMA colleagues are worried he’s gonna blow this deal they need. Could a coup d’etat be in the offing? Meanwhile, Endeavor is asking for more financial info. And other major agencies are starting betting pools.
