EVP, Business & Legal/Deputy General Counsel, Fox Networks Group

The second-highest ranking executive in the business and legal affairs division scored one for Fox Networks Group this year, winning the World Cup rights in 2018 and 2022. She was also involved in Fox’s NFL renewal, including the new 9-year deal that keeps the NFC package on Fox Sports through the 2022 season. She credits the success in workplace to “a team that works well together.” Teran, who wasn’t a sports fan when she joined Fox 14 years ago, has since found religion and counts herself an avid fan.

What’s your favorite part of your job?
My favorite part of my job is that it is totally unpredictable. Every day there are new problems to solve, new technologies to contemplate and new strategies to discuss, at a company that continues to make its name by pushing the envelope. It makes for a challenging and fulfilling job where there is no time to be bored!
How do you define success in the workplace?

In our business, those are the goals that are constantly put before us. I’m eternally grateful that I’ve had the opportunity to work with these types of teams repeatedly in my time here at Fox—which is what continues to make my job here fulfilling.
Who would you want to swap jobs with for a month and why?

If I had a month to job swap, honestly, I would love to swap with Mario Batali. His multi-faceted culinary empire based on his level of cuisine and his business acumen strikes me as a fascinating place to learn about another business that is constantly expanding and recreating itself, both domestically and internationally. And having access to that food every day! Only problem is, I would need the following month off to spend at the gym…
