Courtney White

White now sits at the head of the Food Network table, where she oversees an empire whose ratings continue to grow under her stewardship. This year she and her team delivered 12% more premieres in prime, and tee’d up 30% more holiday-themed premiere hours for Q4. Among the reasons viewers just can’t seem to change the channel is White’s keen ability to cultivate relationships with a stable of talented on-air and digital personalities, begetting a stream of new projects and multi-platform content deals. Speaking of the stream, she’ll be busier than ever with the launch of parent Discovery’s global streaming service, of which Food is a central ingredient.
