Santos oversees the Asian American network’s strategy, programming, production, marketing, ad sales and business development, with the goal of elevating the narratives of one of the most under-represented minority groups in media. With Santos at the helm, the net launched on Time Warner Cable in southern California last November. He also upped the net’s digital offerings and launched four new original programs. Santos defines diversity as something “beyond physical manifestation of race or gender—it’s about everything that makes us human such as our beliefs, personalities, and experiences.”
