Jeremy Legg
SVP, Business Development and Multiplatform Distribution
Turner Broadcasting System

Legg is responsible for spearheading Turner’s TV Everywhere initiative, plus developing and executing all nonlinear distribution across broadband, interactive TV platforms and wireless.

Legg is an active member of CTAM and an advisory board member for X+1, Ensequence and PlayOn Sports.
