Steve Raab, SNY

Years in Industry: 20

Education: B.A., Brown University; MBA, Harvard Business School

Sure, it’s tough running an RSN during a crisis that’s canceled much of live sports. But Raab and team have kept going, with plenty of news to cover and a busy lead-up to a shortened MLB season. Even before MLB games return, SNY’s broadcast team is winning accolades. The Athletic asked fans to rank the best broadcast team in the majors with SNY’s winning the honor (Gary Cohen earned a near perfect 4.96 out of 5 from fans for play-by-play work). Another nice win for Raab was a deal to continue televising UConn women’s basketball games after the school moved to the Big East.

The first thing I’ll do when I’m back in the office is…
