Strong’s mission is to lock in long-term distribution deals and revenue growth for A+E Networks. New to her plate this year is oversight of digital media and business development for negotiating VOD, TV Everywhere, mobile and other digital media products across platforms. We’ll see more of this complex wheeling and dealing next year as she looks for new ways to monetize the company’s content. Strong believes that diversity in cable can be achieved with “less talk and more action” and “by having a willingness to include and an openness to varying experiences, perspectives and cultures.”
