Meet The Man Who Created Mediaco With Jeff Smulyan


NEW YORK — For 22 years, Soohyung Kim has been investing in “special situations strategies.” This experience saw Soo serve as co-founder of Cyrus Capital Partners in the mid-2000s, following a six-year run as the co-founder of the fixed income business at Och-Ziff Capital Management.

Today, this Princeton University graduate serves as the founding partner of Standard General, and is the 12-year-old firm’s Managing Partner and Chief Investment Officer.

Thanks to a transaction announced July 1, Soo is also now the Chairman of a newly formed entity that sees Standard use some of its $1.5 billion in available investment dollars by teaming up with Emmis Communications and his long-time friend, Jeff Smulyan.
