The TV exec has lots of good things to say about Twitter and other social media networks. Aereo? Not so much.
Co-Chair, Disney Media Networks and President, Disney/ABC Television Group
Television execs have been slow to catch on to the importance of digital in attracting viewers in more innovative ways. But, as co-chair of Disney Media Networks, Anne Sweeney led the industry into the digital era when the Disney/ABC Television Group became the first media company to put television content on new platforms. Now she oversees ABC Studios, the ABC Owned Television Stations Group and the ABC Television Network, which ￼provides entertainment, news and kids’ programming to viewers via more than 200 affiliated stations across the U.S. She also oversees Disney Channels Worldwide, including Disney Channel, Disney XD, Disney Junior and other brands. Sweeney has also held executive positions at FX Networks and Nickelodeon/Nick at Nite.
