This dynamic duo leads the content and distribution game at NBCU, teaming up to close carriage agreements with cable and vMVPD partners and expand access to NBC and Telemundo in affiliate station markets, including TV Everywhere apps and vMVPDs. While Tokyo 2020 may have been pushed to 2021, responsibilities only increased in 2020 with the launch of streaming service Peacock, giving the pair another product to partner with distributors on.
