Noggin, ParentsConnect and NickJr.com, Nickelodeon

Digital guru Van Court leads Nickelodeon Kids and Family Group’s preschool and parents online businesses. She was the driving force behind the recent facelifts of Nickjr.com and ParentsConnect.com and enhanced interactivity additions. She also oversees daily management of Noggin. “In a crowded entertainment industry, people have more options, but less time to filter through all of their choices,” the former ESPN exec says. “The way that we excel at Nickelodeon is by serving as the first stop for a time-starved generation.” She advises younger women in cable to trust themselves. “First, listen to older women who have already succeeded in the industry. Then, throw away half of that information and listen to yourself. The Millennial Generation is comprised of the people who are going to shape and lead those changes, so young women should trust their own experiences and intuition.”
