Why Him? He’s known for his billions, his Dallas Mavericks and his ballsy business sense. To be sure, this guy doesn’t shy away from risk. Last year, Cuban relaunched HDNet as AXS TV with the help of pop culture darling Ryan Seacrest, entertainment and music venue company AEG and CAA, and recently launched a live music concert series that starred the best tribute bands around (We’ve been to the Roxy in L.A. for a few of these Monday night performances, and they’re off da hook). With plenty of projects and even a starring role on ABC’s entrepreneurial reality show “Shark Tank,” Cuban knows how to stay busy. Meanwhile, his partnership with AEG is beginning to bear fruit. One thing is certain: He has assembled a strong team to reinvigorate on-air live entertainment.
