President/Co-COO
C-SPAN

Why Him? In today’s Internet-centric world, that a network devoted to covering government can thrive is due in part to the digital foundation C-SPAN has built. Part of Kennedy’s quest is to keep C-SPAN on the digital edge. “In addition to deepening our involvement with Twitter and Facebook, we’re looking forward to working with our affiliates to leverage new interface technologies such as smart TVs,” he says.

DC Doesn’t Wait: A seemingly laid-back exec, Kennedy has been relentless when it comes to C-SPAN’s digital might. Within minutes of premiering, each day’s Washington Journal is available online. Not resting on his laurels, Kennedy says, “We see opportunities to improve the timeliness of delivering our TV schedule information and to provide access to on-demand videos.”

Favorite Digital Toy: “Anything with a GPS.”

What You Miss About Analog: “Simple connections between devices.”

What Would You Like Digital Devices To Do? “I’d like to see syncing of content and data across devices become even more seamless. There are good tools out there like Dropbox and Evernote, but lots of apps fall short. And it would be great if Apple developed some form of wireless sync across its devices.”

On Your iPad: “SkyGrid and Pulse for news; Flipboard for social. I’m also really into apps that I’d call ‘personal data loggers’ like RunKeeper and Sleep Cycle. And I’m always up for a game of Words with friends.”
