Best Advice in 7 Words or Less: Always do the right thing.

After securing significant distribution deals in 2014 to expand Scripps’ television and digital audiences including agreements with Netflix, Dish, Sony and NCTC, Ahn has an even loftier goal this year: Redefining the video experience across platforms. As he leads Scripps’ TV Everywhere charge to nearly 100 percent availability, he is focusing on the consumer experience on TV, PCs, mobile devices and tablets—anywhere everywhere content is consumed. He’s intent upon reaching millennials, who may not see the traditional cable or satellite bundle as a first entertainment choice, while at the same time ensuring linear customers have access to Scripps content, regardless of their service provider.
