Program Title: The wild saga of Ozy Media
Description: In 2013, former TV news contributor Carlos Watson promised to shake up the media landscape by launching a new company, Ozy Media.

Over the years, Watson's company struggled to connect. Then a week ago, a bombshell New York Times investigation brought Ozy a tidal wave of attention — exactly the wrong kind. It revealed that Watson's right-hand man, Samir Rao, impersonated a YouTube exec on a high-stakes call with investment bank Goldman Sachs.

Today on Front Burner, we talk to Ben Smith, the New York Times journalist behind the story that almost led to the company's collapse and even pointed out a potential case of securities fraud.
