Earlier this year, Arroyo was named to his newly established position. In this role, he guides Scripps’ adherence to all applicable laws and regulations worldwide, including oversight of the company’s code of ethics. He also continues to supervise the internal legal teams. Regarding the current presidential election, Arroyo advises everyone take a deep breath. “This is a serious election, but we need to tamper the rhetoric and focus on the problems we face as a country and consider soberly how we are going to fix them,” he says.

What grade do you give the cable industry on diversity and why?
I think the industry is committed, and gains have been made both programmatically and in certain hiring areas, but at the senior-most levels of leadership there still is work to be done.

My personal election campaign slogan would be …
“Let’s all take a deep breath.” Yes, this is a serious election, but we need to tamper the rhetoric and focus on the problems we face as a country and consider soberly how we are going to fix them. I am optimistic about the future and our capacity to chart a bright course forward.

Favorite charity organization you work with?
It is a tie between the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (where I sit on the board) and Latino Justice, a civil rights and education organization that I once chaired.
