Why Them? Bratches, Preschlack and Driessen shook hands last year with four of the biggest cable operators over major multiplatform deals. The agreements not only give ESPN’s lauded lineup a continued spot in front of sports fans, but they also support the network’s expansion of on-the-go offerings. The move toward new authenticated packages and apps like WatchESPN—with more on the way—promises to keep viewers tuned in to more to their favorite programs. And more eyeball time means more ad revenue. The trio can be credited with contributing each of their talents to this massive deal, which holds the promise for even bigger bucks down the line.
