This year's list, released in early May, carries the names of NINE leaders from Scripps Networks Interactive: our CEO, Ken Lowe; COO Burton Jablin; Chief Content Officer Kathleen Finch; Chief Revenue Officer Steve Gigliotti; Henry Ahn, president, content distribiution & marketing; Jon Steinlauf, president of ad sales; along wtih three of Jon's top leaders: Donna Stephens, who heads ad sales for HGTV and DIY Network; Karen Grinthal, who leads the sales team at Food Network and Cooking Channel; and Greg Regis, ad sales leader at Travel Channel and Great American Country.
Amy Maclean, who edits Cablefax The Magazine, perhaps put it best: "This is the Big One. The list that everyone is jockeying to get on."
Yeah, it is. And we're honored to have placed so many worthy Scripps leaders on this year's roll.
