I met Cherno in August in the badlands of North Dakota and we became fast friends. besides being one of the most well-known newscasters in Germany, Cherno is also incredibly interesting and friendly.
Cherno is the anchor of the top-rated morning show in Germany on ZDF German television (one mutual friend said that "Cherno is the Matt Lauer of Germany" … but Cherno has a lot more hair). he’s one of the only non-white newscasters in Germany and he has a great personality to fit his big shoes.
normally in Berlin, Cherno was in the US briefly to report on CES and Macworld.
Cherno hadn’t had a chance to meet a lot of tech entrepreneurs and VCs before. so we had a great 12-person dinner with Renee Blodgett, Saar Gur, Torsten Jacobi, Uwe Maurer, Patrick McKenna, Eve Phillips, Aydin Senkut, Seth Sternberg, Brad Stone, and Chris Tolles.
