Their business is making stars. But these days, the moguls running the fantasy factories seem to be getting nearly as much ink as the celebs they create. What company will Barry buy next? Who's squaring off against Rupert? And where will Michael's Magic Kingdom show up next?

The media business is being transformed as never before, giving moguls like John Malone, Gerald Levine, and the Dreamworks troika an ever-larger world in which to make deals, create new products, and seek alliances. Power Lunch intends to take you inside media conglomerates -- and those that are only now emerging on the scene -- to tell the stories of the moguls and how they're fighting the war for consumers' eyes, ears, and pocketbooks. Ron Grover, Business Week's Los Angeles bureau chief and a veteran Hollywood reporter, gets the inside tales and passes them on to you before they hit the front pages of your local newspaper.
