This week on EO 360°, we’re joined by Art Bell, a writer, and former media executive for cable television. Most notably, Art is the creator of the massively successful and iconic Comedy Central. Listen in as Art shares the story of how he went about creating a cable channel for just comedy, which was unheard of at the time. Uncover the inner workings of cable television networks and all the struggles that Art went through in order to get Comedy Central off the ground, which, as Dave notes, is similar to entrepreneurship!
