Moguls, Journalists Descend On Sun Valley For Media/Technology Confab

This week, the world’s media, entertainment and technology moguls are converging on Sun Valley, Idaho for the annual Allen & Company shindig. What happens in Sun Valley usually stays in Sun Valley, but according to a number of reporters in attendance, we can glean a few things.

For starters, CBS News anchor Charlie Rose, NBC News’ Tom Brokaw and CNN’s Erin Burnett are all attending, with Rose and Brokaw scheduled to moderate (secret) panels. CNBC’s Julia Boorstin, FBN’s Dennis Kneale and Bloomberg TV’s Jon Erlichman are getting as close as they can to cover the action for their networks.

In terms of moguls, all the usual suspects are there: 21st Century Fox CEO Rupert Murdoch, along with sons Lachlan Murdoch and James Murdoch (above), Disney’s Bob Iger, ESPN’s John Skipper, Comcast’s Brian Roberts, CBS’ Les Moonves, Time Warner’s Jeff Bewkes, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Apple CEO Tim Cook and IAC’s Barry Diller among many, many others.

Spotted at the Grand Central Apple Store: Tim Cook and Brian Williams

A TVNewser fan was at the Apple store at Grand Central Terminal in New York this afternoon and snapped — with his iPhone 5 — Apple CEO Tim Cook in an interview with NBC’s Brian Williams. ‘Tis the season. No word on when or where the interview airs. We’re pretty sure the NBC crew used Google maps to find their way to Grand Central.

> Update: Williams announced on “Nightly News” the Cook interview — his first TV interview since taking over as CEO more than a year ago — will air on “Rock Center” next Thursday.
