It is with honor that I accepted the recognition recently of being named one of cable’s Most Powerful Women. It’s rewarding to have efforts get noticed in an industry with such talented women. This year’s celebratory activity held at the Grand Hyatt on December 5th was a festive event that celebrated top women leaders, while also celebrating cable’s Top 100 power players and providing some interesting leadership insight from a guest panel of top women leaders.

It’s a great honor that, for the second year, Comcast Spotlight’s senior leadership team has been recognized by the editors of CableFAX Magazine by being included in the annual “CableFAX 100” issue. I think I speak for my team in saying that list puts is in some amazing company.
After a short late-summer “lull,” the return to fall brings a return to conferences and panels, exploring the important issues facing the media industry. Comcast Spotlight will be “front and center” in those conversations, with our executives sharing their insights about what’s happening today, and what’s to come in the months ahead.
In addition to Comcast Spotlight’s Kevin Smith being named to the CableFAX Sales Hall of Fame, we were honored that Comcast Spotlight picked up our first-ever CableFAXIE award during an event in New York this week.
Once again this year, CableFAX is honoring outstanding cable ad sales leaders through its Sales Executive of the Year Awards, and once again, we at Comcast Spotlight are thrilled to see one of our own inducted into their Sales Hall of Fame.
For the second year, I’ve had the honor of being among women named to CableFAX Magazine’s “Most Powerful Women” list. This is a true honor and one that I don’t take lightly, as it is always a pleasure to know that the work you do every day makes a difference.
This week, CableFAX Magazine published its annual “CableFAX 100” list. It’s an honor to have been included on that list along with Comcast Spotlight’s senior leadership team of Hank Oster, Steve Feingold and Bill Haase, but to me, it is an honor that rightly belongs to all of the roughly 3,000 Comcast Spotlight team members across the country.
As fall approaches, it brings with it a busy time for conferences, panel discussions and webinars in the media industry. These events always offer great opportunities to find out what’s happening now and what’s on the horizon in our business, and we’re proud that Comcast Spotlight will be participating in many of them over the next few months.
This month, CableFAX is once again saluting the best of the best in the cable advertising sales business at the Sales Executive of the Year Awards. Many of our friends and colleagues at cable networks and our fellow service providers are among this year’s honorees, and we want to congratulate them for all that they do for our industry.
