25 year old Gus who is rumored to be preparing to take the reins from his dad sometime this year has doubters who are foolishly attaching his age to whether or not he can run a media company. Then there are those who believe he's exactly what the company needs right now namely Rolling Stone which needs to attract younger readers. The magazine's new co-owner Meng Ru Kuok who runs BandLab Technologies shared his vision for the Rolling Stone brand. He said that the future of Rolling Stone isn't Rolling Stone magazine. He said "the next stage in Rolling Stone’s “lifecycle is…merchandise, hospitality and physical experiences". Gus Wenner had to convince his dad that digital was a critical part of the company's future. Now he's about to convince him to turn over the keys to the entire ship, if he hasn't already.
