Simmelkjaer manages a collection of NBC Sports properties within the group, including NBC Sports Radio, the Spartan Race, Motocross and the Red Bull Signature series. He also heads up the acquisition and distribution of global media rights. Equally at ease in front of and behind the camera, Simmelkjaer is also an on-air contributor across multiple NBCU platforms—NBC Sports, NBCSN, CNBC and more. He believes more progress should be made in the industry to foster diversity “at the upper echelons of management.” Regarding technology, he thinks VR has the potential to revolutionize viewing. “But it is more than a year away,” so over the next year “improved and expended streaming options provided by MVPDs” will benefit cable the most, he says.
