It’s been a very rewarding year for Silberwasser as it was Telemundo’s best-year ever with strong ratings and share growth in key day parts, particularly in Monday-Friday primetime. Named president of the network only about a year ago, he has worked closely with NBCUniversal’s Hispanic Enterprises and Content senior team and Telemundo’s leadership to develop entertainment, sports and news growth strategy with a focus on increased market share and profitability. Over the course of his career, the Discovery vet has acquired a deep understanding of the U.S. Hispanic and Latin American markets. No wonder he considers “Don’t improvise… know what you are talking about” the best business advice he has received.
