Ed Carroll, AMC Networks

Years in Cable: 30

Education: SUNY New Paltz

“Mad Men” and “Breaking Bad” may be over, but it’s obvious Carroll hasn’t lost his golden touch. In addition to expanding AMC Networks International to more than 140 countries and territories around the world, he continues to extend his programming legacy through AMC Studios and across all five AMC Networks—AMC, BBC America, IFC, SundanceTV and WE tv. While AMC and BBC America have high-profile hits like “The Walking Dead” and “Orphan Black,” IFC, SundanceTV and WE tv have seen significant ratings growth. With a spate of new originals ready to debut, Carroll could be adding another decade onto his own golden age of television.
