CEO & COO
YES Network

YES men Dolgin and Hopkins piloted the nation’s most-watched regional net for the 5th consecutive year. This despite the Yankees’ relatively early post-season exit. With another acquisition-filled offseason predicted for the Bronx Bombers, YES looks poised for a strong ’11. Dolgin’s concerns? “Cord-cutting,” he says. “While sports – regional sports networks in particular – is the antidote for cord-cutting, it will still be a threat as long as content owners sell or give away their digital content to customers who are not authenticated, who are not paying for that content through their video provider.” Known as one of cable’s good guys, Hopkins is passionate about “helping college students develop a strategy that better positions them to secure a job in their desired field upon graduation. I received great advice from a lot of people when I was starting out… so, I’ve always tried to help students as they prepare to enter the workforce.”
