Mereka kemudian memiliki kelompok stasiun televisi dan televisi kabel yang kuat. Pamannya, Barney Balaban, merupakan presiden Paramount Pictures selama hampir 30 tahun dari tahun 1936-1964.[7] Suami kedua dari neneknya, Sam Katz, merupakan wakil presiden Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer yang dimulai pada tahun 1936.
