CFO, Bravo & Oxygen Media

“People who know me would not be surprised to hear that I studied too much and spent a lot of energy concerned about my GPA,” says Tang of her 13-year-old self, whom she’d now advise to “Have more fun!”. Still, all that studying helped land Tang in her current post, where she oversees the networks’ financial functions, including the development of strategic and long-range plans. Tang identifies growth drivers and new revenue streams for Bravo and Oxygen as well as plays a vital role in defining and building strategic initiatives. “The amount of content and number of new platforms available to consumers has been an ongoing story,” she says of current cable trends.

 

What advice would you give your 13-year-old self?

Have more fun!  People who know me would not be surprised to hear that I studied too much and spent a lot of energy concerned about my GPA.

 

Which current programming best reflects the kind of women’s roles you like to see and why?

I love the female characters on “Suits.”  They are smart, witty, strong and the best at what they do professionally.   Plus, they have incredible taste in clothing.

 

What’s been the biggest story in cable this year?

The amount of content and number of new platforms available to consumers has been an ongoing story.
