I hope Mel stays on. If he leaves, the market will sell the stock off, big time. I hope Redstone is smart enough to know that, but you never can tell with egomaniacs. --reasonable10

I agree with you. However, some sources are telling me that it is a pretty much foregone conclusion that Mel will exit when his contract expires. Granted, many things can change the dynamics between now and next year, but for the moment, it does seem that Mel K. will leave.
