Meet the New Broadcast TV Chiefs at ABC, Fox and NBC

These 4 execs are ready to share their strategies

The 2018-19 broadcast season got off to an unexpectedly turbulent start last fall when a whopping three network chief jobs turned over in the space of just two months. In September, George Cheeks and Paul Telegdy jointly stepped in as NBC Entertainment co-chairmen, replacing the departing Robert Greenblatt.
