Marie Donoghue

Those Thursday Night Football games on Prime? Fans have Donoghue to thank for the groundbreaking deal that brought an exclusive NFL national broadcast package to a streaming service for the first time. The former ESPN exec leads all of Prime Video’s global sports content business, identifying new opportunities and managing acquisitions, programming and production across 240-plus countries and territories.

Three words to describe you: Adventurous, fun and forward-looking.
