Chairman of Firebrand Media Speaks with Donald Trump

Laguna resident Allan Simon interviews the real estate mogul about coastal real estate, the economy and more.
Dec. 16, 2010 - PRLog -- Laguna Beach, Calif. (Dec. 14, 2010) – Laguna Beach resident and Firebrand Media LLC Chairman Allan Simon hosted Donald Trump in a phone interview on Monday morning. The two discussed timely business topics relevant to Orange County residents, including how the economy is impacting Trump’s Southern California real estate. Trump also expressed strong opinions on the economy, trade policies, China and South Korea.

As Orange County’s fastest-growing media company, Firebrand Media LLC publishes a number of local, regional and national publications, including Newport Beach Magazine, Laguna Beach Magazine, and the Newport Beach Independent and Laguna Beach Independent newspapers.

“The constituents of our editorial offerings in these coastal communities, much like Mr. Trump himself, look to the economy ahead when maneuvering their personal portfolios. Mr. Trump’s unique insight and perspective will not be lost on our audience,” Simon says.

The full interview will be posted to, Firebrand’s newest media product, on Thursday afternoon. Firebrand’s weekly newspapers, the Newport Beach Independent and the Laguna Beach Independent, will also report on the interview, and a Q and A with Trump is scheduled for an upcoming issue of Newport Beach Magazine.

“One of our editorial strengths is bringing a local perspective to big names—with a recent profile on the reclusive best-selling author Dean Koontz and an upcoming feature on Olympic ice skater Sasha Cohen, both Newport residents,” Steve Zepezauer, CEO and editorial director of Firebrand, comments. “Our readers enjoy connecting with leaders in business, sports and entertainment as if they were neighbors.”

Trump’s extensive real estate holdings include an oceanfront Palos Verdes golf course, only an hour’s drive from Orange County, and a spectacular day trip destination for readers of Newport Beach Magazine. The trip will be included as part of the magazine’s travel coverage.
