Celebrating Media’s Key Women Leaders

The editors of Multichannel News are proud to introduce the 2019 Wonder Women, the latest group of influential, accomplished women from multichannel media industries to be recognized by the magazine. The vision, commitment and leadership of the executives in this 21st class has fostered the success of their companies while driving overall industry growth and innovation.

Multichannel News will also honor 12 Women to Watch, whose ongoing contributions are emblematic of the vital roles they’re likely to play in television’s continuing transformation.

This year’s Wonder Women class will be lauded March 20 at a gala luncheon at the New York Marriott Marquis in Times Square, co-hosted by the New York chapter of Women in Cable Telecommunications. For much more on the event and on this year’s honorees, visit mcnwonderwomen.com.
