President, Distribution & Business Development
The Weather Company

The polar opposite of the headline-grabbing sparring matches this year, Dangar recently has quietly renewed the majority of her major distribution deals with little fanfare, securing future carriage for The Weather Channel in long-term deals. No small feat to gracefully navigate brutal negotiation landscape, particularly given that the network is an indie, but this exec is adept at leveraging longtime relationships. She’s working to roll out more interactive and second screen opportunities for Weather, including the company’s newest initiative of incubating a new business that leverages the highly local and ever-changing data set the network distributes worldwide across every device. She’d trade places short-term with another of our honorees: Oprah Winfrey. “I would love to be able to be as deliberate as she is about how she spends her time and energy, as well as enjoy her unlimited access across so many walks of life.”
