QDE's broad ranging, multi-media activities include theatrical motion pictures; network, cable and syndicated television; magazine publishing; live entertainment; direct response television stations and interactive content for the newest technological platforms.
During his illustrious career, Salzman has earned a reputation for creativity and leadership in a broad spectrum of areas. As a broadcaster, he helped put 10 television stations on the air and ran a station group.
