SVP, Content Acquisition

Time Warner Cable

When it comes to negotiating for carriage and advanced services, Chun has a good understanding of what it’s like on both sides of the table, having previously served as SVP, business and legal affairs for Fox Cable Networks Group. How does she balance the inevitable long hours that come during deal talks? Taking advantage of unanticipated free time. “Impromptu personal plans can make you feel like you’re stealing a little time back,” she says.

What’s your favorite part of your job?

Best trick for maintaining the personal-professional life balance?
