Why her? Legal matters and carriage agreements aren’t ever going away. That’s why Tuzon plays such a vital role at Fox Networks Group. She spearheads the media conglomerate’s deals with cable operators and satellite providers—like recent deals with DISH Network and Cablevision—and navigates any blips or big bumps in the road, including the recent carriage battle with DirecTV.
