This is the 10th consecutive year that Multichannel News has chosen a class of 40 executives in and around the multichannel-TV universe to bring to our readers’ attention. This class includes impact-makers in traditional sectors — cable networks, cable providers, cable technology firms — and, increasingly, younger men and women entrepreneurs in new categories of content creation, such as studios that provide shows both for pay TV and for online viewers, and marketing and branding agencies.
As always, each member of in the 2015 class falls within the under-40 age demographic. And, as always, we welcome suggestions from readers as we look to shape this new-every-year list in years to come.
