Cyma Zarghami

Zarghami is truly a Nickelodeon lifer, having been with the Viacom-owned network since 1985. During that time, she’s helped build Nick into the torch-bearer for children’s programming and these days is adapting it to the multiplatform era. Nick Jr.’s “Paw Patrol” has been an immense success among preschoolers, and Nick’s upcoming latest iteration of the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” series is on track to make a splash. Viacom CEO Bob Bakish earlier this year pointed to Nick as an example for all of the company’s brands to follow; credit Zarghami for much of that success.
