Introducing BIG SHOTS: LAmag’s New Video Series With Giselle Fernandez


Los Angeles magazine is excited to announce a groundbreaking new video series, “BIG SHOTS with Giselle Fernandez.” Beginning today, the Emmy-winning broadcaster and producer will talk every other week with another influential businessperson, philanthropist, politician, or cultural leader—some who live in Los Angeles, others who visit regularly in the course of their work—about what they do, who they are, and why they spend time in this great city. This premiere episode features telecom titan Carlos Slim, whose $73 billion fortune had him at the top of Forbes’ annual world’s-richest list. Slim, who was most recently in town to attend the Milken Institute Global Conference, spoke candidly with Fernandez about the digital future, how he thinks technology is shaping society today, why philanthropy is the key to a happy life, and what he likes most about L.A.
