Turner Leaders Recognized by Cablefax & NAMIC

"The single largest technology transformation since our inception"

Turner owns and operates some of the most successful and recognizable brands on the planet. But as disruption continues in the industry, and the “race to the center” becomes the ultimate goal, a lot has to happen. That is why the next year and a half will bring tremendous change within Turner. In fact, Turner Chief Technology Officer, Jeremy Legg, calls it, “the single largest technology transformation since our inception.” Broadcast technologies have traditionally required a mix of software and hardware—a massive amount of hardware. Turner is converting much of its infrastructure to a more modern, flexible, software-based solution, as well as centralizing its entire technological operations – from app development, to streaming, to IT infrastructure. Recently, we sat with Jeremy to learn more about the transition, his team and what it takes to make this transition a reality.

“We are not only re-imagining TV, we are re-imagining HR”

As executive vice president and global chief human resources officer, Angela Santone is re-imagining our corporate responsibility, culture and engagement, diversity and inclusion, learning and recruiting efforts. As the media landscape shifts, Santone is focused on evolving a consistent internal culture across Turner’s diverse portfolio of global entertainment, news and digital brands, while also recruiting, developing and retaining top talent.
