Hamptons Celebs Rule HR’s Most Powerful in Media

Several Hamptons residents made The Hollywood Reporter’s list of New York‘s 35 Most Powerful People in Media, including Kelly Ripa, Katie Couric, Barbara Walters, George Stephanopoulos, Howard Stern, Matt Lauer, Jimmy Fallon, Lorne Michaels, Jon StewartAnderson Cooper and his boss, CNN head Jeff Zucker. The esteemed stars, who were honored with a party at Manhattan‘s Four Seasons restaurant last week, make up nearly a third of the list (and that’s if we didn’t miss anyone).

It seems safe to say that the Hamptons is one of the world’s greatest hotbeds of media power. Compare power players to population and we’re clearly the pound for pound winner. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, New York and L.A.!
