Kristin Frank

For those familiar with Frank and her work, her elevation this year to a job that includes even more responsibility comes as no surprise. A seasoned media executive and innovator, she excels at creating compelling content, and new structures and strategies to expand MTV’s multiscreen relationship with fans. In addition to overseeing revenue and strategy, Frank continues to oversee the network’s digital and mobile operations, including the development of original series for MTV’s digital platforms and Snapchat Discover, the reimagination of MTV News, which currently reaches 83 million social followers and averages 30 million streams a month, and the proliferation of MTV’s TV Everywhere product. She also knows the importance of trusting instincts, as demonstrated by her advice to her 13-year-old self: “You can try to fool your intuition, but your intuition won’t fool you. Trust yourself. “
