Mike McCarley
Title: President, Golf Channel
Years in Cable: 5
Education: University of Arizona

Tiger Woods may not have had a great year in golf… but McCarley did. In 2014, the Golf Channel matched its highest-rated year—quite impressive considering that Woods only played in 30 percent of his expected rounds. This year, the Golf Channel will televise more live golf tournaments than all other networks combined. And in 2016, Golf Channel will be home to the biggest event in the network’s history with the sport returning to the Olympics after an absence of more than 100 years.

I watch most programming on this device: TV
Favorite screen: The closest available screen
Apple iWatch or Rolex? Rolex
Favorite vacation spot: Any beach next to a golf course
Favorite TV show as a kid: “Different Strokes”
Dish I can make and that would impress a celebrity chef: Pozole Verde
My favorite business/motivational book: The Energy Bus by Jon Gordon
