Years in Cable: 4+

One Word that Best Describes Me: Frothy

 

With its administration and production facilities now combined in a single location, OWN experienced its most-watched year in network history. With four consecutive years of double-digit viewership growth, Salata and Logan oversee a slate of popular new and returning shows, including OWN’s ambitious seven-night original series “Belief,” which reached 220+ countries via on-air and digital platforms, culminating in a special screening and Q&A at the United Nations. OWN’s eCourse offerings expanded, creating an additional revenue stream while providing the audience with an interactive extension of topics discussed on the network. It’s little wonder that Fast Company named OWN named one of The World’s Most Innovative Companies of 2015.
