Annie Balagot

Managing sales and content distribution for a company as large as NBCUniversal is no easy feat. In 2020-2021, the NBCUniversal group is approaching a heavy deal renewal cycle, not to mention the ongoing Peacock distribution talks. If anyone’s up to the challenge, it’s Balagot. Over the last several years she’s negotiated more than $1 billion in distribution terms and spearheaded Peacock’s carriage through its national launch. She also championed the creation of NBCU’s “The More You Know” PSAs fighting racism and xenophobia against Asian-Americans.

The conversation about racial injustice in 2020 has been… educational for the entire family. We’ve been using current events to help teach our kids about differences in the world that they haven’t experienced but can now understand, empathize and help change for the future.
