Drew Watkins

From expanding its coverage of various games and leagues to successfully launching an esports league, Turner Sports has been scoring big of late. And Watkins has proven himself to be a forward-looking coach and consummate team player. He manages the operations and staff of Turner Sports and the NBATV creative units, and oversees conceptualization, direction and execution of all on-air broadcast, promotional and internal creative content for Turner’s sports properties and NBATV. “Diversity of people leads to diversity of thought,” Watkins says, “And when harnessed properly, diversity of thought is extremely powerful.”
