Kang’s work ethic is—pun intended— inspiring. He oversees all network distribution and affiliate marketing aspects of INSP, and he’s not afraid to surround himself with go-getters when making new hires. Kang looks for individuals who have “evidence of grit, unique backgrounds, humility, confidence, and candidates who are smarter than me.” Believing that diverse employees can make a whole organization greater than the sum of its parts, Kang encourages his fellow industry leaders to support such organizations as the Walter Kaitz Foundation, NAMIC and WICT.

What’s the definition of diversity in 2014, and how can the cable industry do better in the area of inclusiveness?

Unique differences that make a whole organization greater than sum of its parts.  More industry leaders supporting Kaitz, NAMIC and WICT.

What qualities do you look for when making a new hire? 

Evidence of grit, unique background, humility, confidence and candidates smarter than me.

Name one emerging trend in cable we should all have our eye on.  

Wholesome family entertainment making a comeback.
