One Word that Best Describes Me: Honest

YES has always been about delivering the game experience to as many fans as possible on as many platforms as possible, and with Dolgin in charge that will continue to be the case. Even with the setback of losing Comcast in November, YES has kept up the momentum, including launching a slick campaign against the MSO’s decision. The network has proven to be a leader among national and regional networks on social platforms, surpassing 500,000 followers across all platforms including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram, in 2015.
