CableFAX: 87. Online Adventurer: Amy Banse

Amy Banse
Title: Pres, Comcast Interactive Media; SVP, Comcast Corp
Age: Hardly at all
Education: BA, Harvard; JD, Temple
Social Media Quotient: 4

Why Her? Banse is a key asset among Comcast’s senior execs, shepherding, Fancast, Plaxo, Daily Candy and other online ventures into successful properties that keep the MSO edgy. With Comcast rolling out authentication, Banse is poised to become even more influential. And that’s not to mention the potentially explosive content possibilities for Fancast assuming the Comcast-NBCU deal goes through. Banse literally is at the center of the universe. No pressure.

Holy Hulu, Batman: How would Comcast absorbing NBCU affect Fancast? Will it merge into Hulu, remain separate or just go away?

Year Ahead:

With authentication and a mega-content deal in the works, Banse may be attending a lot of high-level meetings in the coming months.
