The biggest innovation in cable over the last year: The attention paid to diversity in primetime television. Shows like “The Nightly Show,” “Master of None,” “People vs. OJ”, “Blackish,” “Key and Peele,” “Scandal,” “Empire,” “Jane the Virgin” and many others have shown that diversity in TV is not only the right thing to do, it’s good business. Now let’s hope we see more diversity when it comes to the moderators of Presidential elections.

The biggest innovation in cable over the last year: Producing live sports events remotely. We did it this year for the MLS season, and it will definitely change the way networks produce live events.

Favorite vacation spot: Okemo in Vermont. I love snow skiing with family & friends.

Best way to spend a Saturday night: There are many, but one of them is watching soccer obviously!

The technology that will most benefit cable over the next year is: The convergence between OTT and TVE services. The key is to deliver to audiences the content they want whenever and wherever they are and Networks, Distributors and OTT providers are working together to do so. 
