Mel's Diner: Steve Mosko
January 16, 2007 12:43 PM
Who: Steve Mosko, president, Sony Pictures Television
When: Oct. 2, 2006
Where: The Grille, Beverly Hills, corner booth
Dined On: Steve ordered liver and onions and a baked potato -- then he offered an explanation.
Steve said he had run into a friend who had lost weight and asked him how he did it.
The friend referred Steve to a service that provides lists of the best things to eat for your particular, um, blood.
So Steve mailed off a vial. In return he received laminated note cards in the mail that he keeps in his wallet. They list tips on the best foods for him to eat. He showed them to me, and indeed they recommended liver and onions.
The Dish: While many studio executives continue to fret about the threats and ambiguity associated with the promise of new media, Steve, a veteran executive and salesman, appears to take change in stride.
He has endured numerous corporate restructures and competed for years as a program supplier without a major co-owned network or station group.
“Do I look stressed out?” he said.
