Cablefax The Magazine - June 2018 - 42

REGIONALS
Last show I binged not on my network(s):
" The Americans "
Favorite podcast: " Hardcore History "
THE SECRETS OF THEIR SUCCESS
Kyle Sherman
President, Home Team
Sports & Fox Sports
College Properties
Fox Sports
Years in Cable: 20
Education: BS,
Business and Public
Administration, LSU
Craig Sloan
EVP, Home Team
Sports
Fox Sports
Years in Cable: 22
Education: University
of Iowa (Go
Hawkeyes!)
Just as good athletes play to their strengths,
Sherman and Sloan succeed by utilizing the power
and totality of all of the RSNs (82 teams from
MLB, the NBA and the NHL) when approaching
national advertisers. As a result, the two and their
staff have hit record revenues during the last
year. Sherman advocates inclusion as evidenced
by the fact that women now comprise 40% of
staff positions compared to the mere 2% from
when he started.
Kyle Sherman
Best advice your mom or dad ever gave you?
Do what you say you're going to do.
Worst advice your mom or dad ever gave
you? Don't get in the motion picture business,
it will be dead in 10 years (that was 1982)
Bitcoin - pro or con? First mover that won't
be the winner in crypto currency.
What product or service could you not live
without? NFL Ticket so I can see my Saints.
What's the first thing you read in the morning?
WSJ and Twitter
What does the future look like for skinny
bundles and flexible packaging? Bright. Very.
Last show I binged not on my network(s):
" Altered Carbon "
Favorite podcast: Tim Ferris
If you could have a superpower, what would
it be and why? The power to be in two places
at once. We represent 50 properties, I could
use the help!

Craig Sloan
The biggest innovation in media/broadband
over the last year? The race to own the entry path
to consumer viewing when turning on the TV/device
(the Smart TV, the connected device, or the MVPD)
Favorite restaurant: Marc Forgione in Tribeca
(my happy place)
Best advice your mom or dad ever gave you?
My Dad, who pointed out when I was coming
out of college that I should get into sales. " Everyone
is selling-may as well get paid for it. "
Worst advice your mom or dad ever gave
you? Getting into sales-rules my life.
An area where media/ broadband could
use improvement? Ahhh yeah-universal
measurement and coding to allow for full
attribution of impressions delivered by media
owners (regardless of how or where content is
consumed). Going to be hard without it as we
move into this new world.
Your social media platform of choice? Twitter
for breaking news
Bitcoin - pro or con? Depends on the hour/day.
Favorite shortform content? My home team
highlights distributed on local news sites by
STN and sold by HTS (shameless plug).
What would be the name of the reality show
based on your company? Work hard, play harder
What product or service could you not live
without? GameChanger app to keep track of
my kids' games when not present
What's the first thing you read in the morning?
WSJ, religiously
What does the future look like for skinny
bundles and flexible packaging? So bright
I need to wear shades- it just makes too
much sense for a certain portion of the viewing
population.
If you could have a superpower, what would
it be and why? Whatever superpower Michael
Jordan has because he can't be human (best
of all-time regardless of sport).
EAGLE EYE
Gary Shorman
President & CEO
Eagle
Communications
Years in Cable: 20
Education: Kansas
University
As more and more products become available
to consumers, Shorman anticipates exponential
growth. Therefore, he can always see the
June 2018
next deal to be made. Shorman feels that the
playing field will be more even if Eagle has the
same services that satellite and bigger cable
operators do. Speaking of playing fields, under
his supervision, Eagle helped make possible
new video boards for the sports facilities at
Fort Hays State University in Hays, Kansas.
Best advice your mom or dad ever gave you?
" You can do anything! "
An area where media/ broadband could use
improvement? Promoting the amazing things
we do!
Bitcoin - pro or con? Can you pay your cable
bill with Bitcoins?
What would be the name of the reality show
based on your company? " All in the Family -
Employee Ownership at Work "
What does the future look like for skinny
bundles and flexible packaging? That horse
is out of the barn...more bundles, more flexibility,
more options.
Favorite podcast: " How I Built This " - NPR
If you could have a superpower, what would
it be and why? Superman, to fly without an
airplane would be really cool!
SPEED RACER
Christine
Whitaker
Regional SVP,
Keystone
Comcast Cable
Years in Cable: 24
Education: BS,
Accounting, George
Mason University
Whitaker's aware that consumers' top need
is high-speed so she and her team worked at
launching 1 Gigabit residential service. She also
believes in servicing the community in more
personal way, hence Comcast partnerships with
A Caring Place and the Belmont Animal Shelter,
which gave back to the Ohio Valley, and the
Chevy Chase Community Action Council to aid
in Indiana.
Favorite restaurant: Filomena Ristorante in
Georgetown (Washington, DC)
Best advice your mom or dad ever gave you?
Never compromise your integrity - you have
two things you must always protect...your
memories and your name!
What product or service could you not live
without? X1 Voice Remote
