One Word that Best Describes Me: Decisive

Last year was a banner one for Raab as SNY enjoyed a wide range of success across the entire network, starting with program ratings. From its live games broadcasts to its Emmy-winning studio programming, 2015 set a new ratings benchmark for the network. As this year progresses, Raab will be invested in the massive planning efforts for SNY’s move to its new facility located downtown at 4 World Trade Center.
