REGIONALS
ket, the execs always yield significant results. They
share the same vision when it comes to tackling
problems-they anticipate them in advance so they
can address them before situations grow worse.
Khoury and Conrad also share a mutual belief when
it comes to giving back. They have a charity golf
outing that raises $145,000 for worthy organizations
including The American Red Cross of Puerto Rick,
The Boys & Girls Club of Puerto Rico and The United
Way of Puerto Rico.
Naji Khoury
What does the future look like for skinny bundles
and flexible packaging? Bright but you need vision
and guts.
" Star Trek " celebrates its 50th Anniversary this
year. So if Mr. Spock's motto is " Live Long and
Prosper, " mine is... Always challenge the status quo
and avoid complacency.
What should cable do to improve its image?
Simplify customer interaction
Hoverboard, driverless car or drone: Drone, which
gives you the ability to see the big picture.
My favorite newfound hobby: Lego (not new), you
lose yourself and start being creative.
John Conrad
What does the future look like for skinny bundles
and flexible packaging? An inevitable trend, but will
require risk-minded strong will from cable operators,
actually the same thing under which the industry was
founded.
Best way to spend a Saturday night: With family
and friends in a beach somewhere, eating fresh catch
from offshore that day.
Hoverboard, driverless car or drone: Drone
I watch the majority of programming on this
device: TV, 50 percent cable/50 percent OTT
Favorite vacation spot: Culebra, Puerto Rico
26. THE FAMOUS TEDDY G.
One Word that Best Describes Me: Focused
27. PATRIOT GAMES
Griggs' accession to network president was the
culmination of following a unique path that over a
period of 30 years took him to all levels of the sports
television production field-from a production assistant
to a camera operator, from a reporter to a producer.
Today, he leads one of the most prolific duos of regional
sports networks-CSN Bay Area and CSN California.
Collectively, these networks deliver more than 600 live
sporting events per year, and over 1,500 live studio
shows.
The biggest innovation in cable over the last year:
No question-as a consumer I love the new Xfinity X1
service. The voice activated command allows me to find
almost any game that is being televised and the ability
to see real time scores via the X1 platform also allows
me to keep track of other games.
Virtual reality is: Coming, but it won't be as good as
actual reality
Last show I watched not on my network(s):
" Justified "
What was the last costume that you wore and
why? A cowboy costume for Western Night during our
spring training trip with our key advertisers. We had a
pack animal to deliver beer to our clients. Attached is
a photo. One of these things is a jack-ass. The other is
the donkey.
What should cable do to improve its image? Start
by posting pictures of execs with donkeys!
My favorite hashtag is: #AuthenticFan
Spotify playlist: Anything with the Zac Brown Band
New favorite binge: Does watching every single
Golden State Warriors game count?
My cable industry mentor and why: Jeff Shell,
former president of Comcast Networks, now Chairman
of Universal Filmed Entertainment Group. Jeff
is always the smartest guy in the room and he takes
his work very seriously but does not take himself too
seriously.
Hoverboard, driverless car or drone: None of the
above. I'd much rather ride my motorcycle, an Indian
Scout.
I watch the majority of programming on this
device: Big-screen TV. It's the best for HD sports.
Favorite Podcast: A's Insider Joe Stiglich and Giants
insider Alex Pavlovic.
My favorite newfound hobby: Again, does watching
every single Golden State Warriors game count?
My personal theme song is: " We're Not the Jet Set,
We're the Old Chevrolet Set " by John Prine and Iris
Dement

The technology that will most benefit cable over
the next year is: Live streaming of games
Favorite vacation spot: The mountains, preferably
next to a running river full of trout
My typical breakfast is: Peanut Butter Cliff Bar and
a cup of coffee. Not sure if that is healthy or not, but at
least I believe it is. That's half the battle.
