Ed Carroll

Title: COO, AMC Networks

Years in Cable: 28

Education: SUNY New Paltz


Carroll is a cable TV powerhouse and the force behind some of cable’s most-talked about shows. In addition to leading AMC, BBC America, IFC, SundanceTV and WE tv, he spearheads the growing AMC Nets International division. He was instrumental in the simultaneous worldwide rollout of “The Walking Dead” companion series “Fear the Walking Dead” in over 125 countries. 2015 was another landmark year for the witty exec, who oversaw the expansion of AMC Studios, which cranks out content including “The Walking Dead,” “TURN: Washington’s Spies,” “Halt and Catch Fire,” “Rectify,” “Fear the Walking Dead,” “Into the Badlands” and “Hap and Leonard.”

The biggest innovation in cable over the last year: The DVR

If this election year was a reality TV series it would be called: “Flip your property and move to Canada”

What was the last costume that you wore and why? Batman (Because “I’m Batman.”)
