Last week, WikiLeaks released a series of emails sent between Dr. Oz, his staff, and executives at Sony (one of his show’s producers). They shed some light on how Dr. Oz’s daily talk show works behind the scenes.
In a January 2014 email, for instance, Dr. Oz reaches out to Michael Lynton, the CEO of Sony Entertainment, about his interest in wearable fitness and health tracking devices.
The email suggests Dr. Oz is planning to use his platform on the show to help expand Sony’s fitness and health tracking devices market. Oz doesn’t mention health considerations. He mostly seems excited about the business synergy with Sony, one of the producers of his show.
