Our annual list of rising industry stars who are already remaking the way television is created, built and delivered. 6/14/2010 08:26:00 AM Eastern
B&C's Next Wave of Leaders 2010YOU MIGHT SAY THAT 'NEXT WAVE' IS AN
appropriate phrase for the television industry in
2010 and beyond. Economic optimism is being
propelled by innovative thoughts on how best to
renew and refresh models, and move businesses
forward. Everything from 3D tech to its delivery,
online video, retrans deals and multi-platform
presentations is shifting.

Helping guide the way is a rising
group of
leaders who understand that sameness no longer leads to success. The 13
game-changers on
this year's list have already made an impact.
They develop series, handle brand integration,
spearhead digital technology, help rebrand networks,
bridge multi-platform worlds, maximize
revenue potential, negotiate huge buys, exploit
the power of the Web and spread the power of
local TV.

In other words, they challenge-a quality most
in need during this next wave of the industry.
