EVP, Affiliate Sales and Marketing, TV One
Over the past year, Rice has nearly doubled TV One’s distribution, thanks partly to last year’s huge agreement with Cablevision. She’s always looking for more, currently pursuing partnerships for the network in Canada. But her accomplishments extend beyond TV One. A mentee in her youth, she made helping to advance career achievement among young women and minorities a priority and is a member of WICT and on NAMIC’s national board. The importance of helping the young can be seen in her response for the recent business accomplishment she’s most proud of: TV One’s launch of “Lights, Camera, AcSTEM,” a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) initiative to provide educational support for middle schoolers across the country.
