The editors of VegasTripping are proud to select Steve Friess as 2007 Vegas Person of the Year. In a town where the media spend more time kissing ass, making deals or spinning wheels, media titan Steve Friess is one of the few fearless enough to tell it like it is and have the stones to call bullshit. In Terry Gilliam's film masterpiece 'Brazil' every day is Christmas. In our little world of 'Las Vegas' every day is Friessmas. Under the tree this year was his racy guide to 'Gay Vegas', periodic columns for Las Vegas Weekly, countless articles in the national press, weekly podcast The Strip with hilarious partner Miles Smith, or daily posts on its companion Strip Podcast Blog. This year we got to watch Steve go head to head with always prickly Steve Wynn, seemingly psychotic Jerry Lewis, lousy Amazing Jonathan, Planet Hollywood CEDB Robert Earl and many many more. For all this and much much much much more... Steve Friess is 2007 Las Vegas Person of the Year. Congratulations, Steve!
