Druley has plenty to be proud of this past year.

And she took part in the signing of legendary sports broadcaster Brent Musburger and college football analyst Jesse Palmer as lead SEC Network commentators. “TV anywhere and everywhere is the biggest cable story this year,” she says. “People are taking advantage of streaming opportunities, like on the ESPN app, to watch live sports wherever they are on whatever device is most convenient.”

What’s been the biggest story in cable this year?
