The Hollywood Reporter is out with its annual Women in Entertainment Power 100. For the third straight year, Anne Sweeney, co-chairman of Disney Media Networks and president of Disney/ABC Television, tops the list.
Sweeney says her proudest moment this year was ABC’s Day of Giving across all the network and syndicated programming. The network raised $19 million for the Red Cross for victims of Hurricane Sandy. “She has a unique combination of professionalism and warmth,” Katie Couric — who also makes the list this year — says of Sweeney.
NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment chairman Bonnie Hammer, CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler, OWN CEO Oprah Winfrey and PBS president and CEO Paula Kerger also made the list.
