In the May 2005 issue of Public CIO, Blake Harris of Government Technology spent a day tailing Menchini. "While 311 has been a centerpiece of Bloomberg's pledge to make government less confusing and more responsive," says the article, "it still is only one small piece of Menchini's responsibilities. These include not only IT, but also telecommunications and managing five cable television channels, as well as a regular broadcast channel and a radio station. 'I am actually a media mogul,' Menchini joked. 'I now have to go through an FCC review. They wanted to know if I own major stakes in any other broadcast companies because I was about to get a license for a noncommercial broadcast television station.'"
