Building on successful legal challenges against DISH Hopper and Aereo, Tuzon turned her attention to preventing the streaming television company FilmOn X from infringing on Fox’s copyrighted content. She did all that while overseeing legal and business aspects surrounding the launch of Fox Sports 1 and FXX and handling legal affairs for Fox International Channels. Asked how she defines diversity, Tuzon says, “I look forward to the day when we are not defining diversity but instead simply living it; the day when there are not separate lists for women and ‘diverse’ executives but one list, representative of all constituencies, no asterisks.”
