Since the first Monday of lockdown in New York, a weekly company-wide Zoom has marked business milestones and built personal ties at Blackstone: President Jon Gray has talked about his Covid puppy Luna. Chief Executive Officer Steve Schwarzman recently told of outdoor adventures with his grandkids, all while wearing a blue Santa hat. 

Dubbed Blackstone Television, the meeting has grown into its name. Gray and Chief Administrative Officer Vik Sawhney read their pun-filled scripts from a teleprompter. Sawhney makes good use of a sound-effects gizmo.
