President, Sports, News and Local Programming, Time Warner Cable

Not only is Rone a good sport, he’s also a newsman now. Last year he assembled a team of 300 employees and successfully launched regional sports nets for the L.A. Lakers and Galaxy. This year his role expanded from overseeing TWC’s sports programming business to include oversight of TWC’s 52 local news channels across the country, which he’s working to rebrand under “Time Warner Cable News” outlets. He’s also busy launching, distributing and selling ads for SportsNet LA, new the regional net home for the L.A. Dodgers beginning with the 2014 MLB season. “In any scenario, reject the crutch of homogeneity and in turn, embrace a process that encompasses a variety of voices, experiences, perspective and capabilities,” he says, “therefore, making it inclusive enough to get you to the best and right place in the end.” Wise words.
