Cablefax The Magazine - March 2017 - 6

Henry Ahn
PRESIDENT, CONTENT
DISTRIBUTION & MARKETING
SCRIPPS NETWORKS INTERACTIVE
Ahn has mastered the delicate ballet
of leading a distribution team that
maintains successful relationships with
Darcy Antonellis
CEO
VUBIQUITY
When it comes to screens, it's less
about size and more about allowing
consumers to move between screens
easily, Antonellis says. " Millennials will
traditional media players, while continuously expanding
the Scripps portfolio with digital players. The list of deals
with emerging service providers include a who's who of
the space-from Sling TV to Facebook to Sony Playstation
Vue. " We've already seen a meaningful number of
subscribers enjoying these platforms. Over the next 12
months and beyond, we'll see many more competing in
the marketplace, " Ahn predicts. The veteran exec isn't
known for sticking to his knitting. Scripps is venturing
into the sandbox of AI offerings such as Amazon Echo
and Google Home.
Christina Alejandre
VP, ESPORTS; GM ELEAGUE
TURNER SPORTS
Turner's professional esports league
may still be in its early stages, but
Alejandre is feeling pretty good about
where it's headed. " We were fortunate
to host our fi rst-ever Eleague Major in January, less
than one year since the launch of Eleague. We also just
announced plans to further expand and diversify our esports
portfolio with the inaugural Eleague Street Fighter
V Invitational, " she says. She's a seasoned esports exec,
having spent three years at Warner Bros. as the director
of publishing for esports. Eleague's inaugural season
brought in 3.4 million new viewers to TBS during its 10week
run (weekly telecasts averaged 247,000 viewers
on the net). Game is certainly far from over.
David Algranati
SVP, PRODUCT
MANAGEMENT
COMSCORE
Algranati's leadership skills combined
with his industry knowledge and mathematical
prowess make him a prominent
fi gure in the multiscreen space. He works on large-scale
engagements with television network groups, with a focus
on advertising planning and effectiveness. He frequently
interacts directly with comScore's clients to customize
the engagement and leverage comScore's data assets
including its 20 million-plus US TV households and
digital census, to create a comprehensive view of media
consumption. Look for continued Algranati-led advancements
in cross-platform lift and ROI efforts.

use whatever screen is available with mobile being the
default. If you believed sports had to be on the big screen
(granted a preferred, premium experience), the recent
Super Bowl mobile options and stream volumes indicate
otherwise, " she says. The former Warner Bros. CTO has
headed Vubiquity since 2014, leading the company to expand
from 39 to 117 countries. Antonellis is a veteran of
three Olympics for CBS Sports, and is a three-time Emmy
winner for technical production and engineering.
Craig Barry
EVP & CHIEF CONTENT
OFFICER
TURNER SPORTS
When it comes to sports at Turner, Barry
has a hand in it all-overseeing remote
and studio productions, operations,
technology and talent for sports content on TNT, TBS
and truTV. His work has paid off with 25 Sports Emmy
Awards. Barry's duties include oversight of Turner Sports'
interests in VR and professional esports organization
Eleague, created in partnership with WME | IMG. He's
known for his creativity but understands the multiscreen
world is a balancing act. " As much as multiscreen can
be a viable companion experience, we're starting to see
it further emerge as an alternative for content consumption, "
he says. " Therefore, as content creators, we need
to develop experiences that are proprietary for our audience
consuming on those devices. "
Scott Barton
SVP, BRANDED DIGITAL
CONTENT & PRODUCTS
STARZ
The Starz app is soaring, and its
launch last April tops Barton's sizable
list of accomplishments during the
past year as he continues to play a key role in digital
distribution product launches across new platforms.
The standalone app is available on a host of devices,
including Amazon Fire TV, Xbox One, Apple TV, iPhone
and iPad, Roku, Sony Android TV, tablets and TV devices.
And in less than a year, it has gone far to expand
the reach of the family of premium pay-TV content-
consistently ranking in the top 10 Entertainment Top
Grossing category on iTunes since its launch.
