Hernan Lopez
Title: President/CEO, Fox International Channels
Years in Cable: 24
Education: Degree in Advertising, Escuela Superior de Publicidad de Buenos Aires; MBA, University of Miami
Best Advice in 7 Words or Less: All who snore are not sleeping.

Lopez has led FOX Sports through such dramatic growth that Fox International Channels is now the largest sports broadcaster in the world, reaching 78.7 million homes in 88 countries outside of the States. FIC’s dedication to acquiring, developing and producing scripted and unscripted programming is also a priority for Lopez, with “The Walking Dead,” “The Bridge” and “Da Vinci’s Demons” all key parts of the company’s portfolio.

Should the industry embrace or reject “virtual MSOs” and why? Embrace them. The alternative is piracy, and nobody wins from that.
Favorite screen: The one without buffering.
The technology that will most benefit cable over the next year is: Audio-based authentication, which we’re developing at FIC.
Favorite TV show as a kid: “The Wonder Years”
My favorite business/motivational book: The Innovators by Walter Isaacson.
