Speciale’s been somewhat of an advertising trendsetter. She was an early proponent both of shortening commercial time in prime time, and of standardizing data-driven advertising targets, easing buyers’ ability to hone in on a specific audience. Both have picked up considerable steam this year. She also leads Turner’s innovation in creating branded content with advertisers. Warren stepped into his role last summer, overseeing all brand distribution, affiliate marketing, interactive television and business development across the Turner portfolio—a role in which the company’s continually broadening nonlinear offerings are taking a heightened role.
