With Fox buying Tubi this spring, Clarke-Hall has new colleagues she has never met face-to-face. That hasn’t stopped her from getting the job done. She led Tubi’s app distribution deals and spearheaded Tubi’s partnerships, including an agreement that puts the AVOD on Enseo’s in-room entertainment platform accessible in more than 30,000 hotel rooms. Clarke-Hall also has led deals with Amazon Echo Show, Cox and Comcast, where Tubi was the third streaming app available on Xfinity after Netflix and YouTube. And she helped make sure Tubi can be accessed by more than 25 devices, including Roku and Fire TV. Clarke-Hall also is leading Tubi’s launches in the UK as well as Mexico with partner TV Azteca. She’s hoping the flexible working environment brought about by the pandemic is here to stay. “I hope I’m right in the long run that this will be good for young mothers and young families because there is more flexibility in the workplace,” Clarke-Hall says. “Saving … two hours a day of commuting is amazing when you’re trying to juggle it.”
What is one of your proudest moments during the pandemic? With surging demand for news, my team and I designed content strategy and closed deals to add live, free news to Tubi, launching with 14 national and 18 local news channels.
