NBCU is firing on multiple cylinders, in part due to the innovation and leadership of Conde and Shapiro. Conde bet big on original content, infrastructure and talent—and Telemundo is reaping the benefits. Additional growth is on the horizon when the net begins broadcasting the 2017 Confederations Cup and the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Shapiro is driving new programming verticals and audiences in the digital realm. Building off the success of comedy SVOD service Seeso, he’s eyeing a slew of different genres and talent to corral under NBCU’s digital umbrella.
