By A.J. Katz 

TVNewser’s parent publication Adweek named Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott to the 2018 Adweek Power List: 100 Cutting-Edge Marketers, Media CEOs, Brand Chieftains and Tech Titans.

Scott, a 22-year Fox News veteran, was named the CEO of Fox News and Fox Business this past May after a year-long run as the network’s president of programming. She assumed the president of programming role following the exit of longtime FNC programming chief and current Trump administration official Bill Shine.

“She’s credited with revamping FNC’s prime-time lineup, expanding live programming and hiring more women to anchor and host shows,” Adweek writes.


Scott, ranked No. 95 in this year’s list, moved up through the ranks at Fox News since joining the network 22 years ago. She helped launch Greta Van Susteren‘s program in 2002, first as associate producer, producer and senior producer of On the Record. She was promoted to VP of programming in 2007.

Speaking of Fox News  – Rupert, Lachlan, and James Murdoch share the No. 11 ranking in this year’s list.

New WarnerMedia CEO John Stankey ranks No. 48. Stankey counts CNN among the properties he now oversees as a result of AT&T’s $85 billion acquisition of Time Warner.
