By CableFAX Staff

Editor’s Note: We’ll be featuring profiles of executives honored in our 2012 CableFAX 100 issue. We asked each of them to answer a few light-hearted questions, the answers to which we’ve shared below. Here is what John Skipper, President of ESPN and Co-Chairman, Disney Media Networks, had to share. He ranks at #3 along with Disney’s Anne Sweeney. Read the CableFAX 100 issue in its entirety here.


ESPN/DISNEY's John Skipper
 
The biggest innovation in cable over the last year has been…
WatchESPN and our Watch Disney products—multi-screen delivery and the proliferation of screens. We now have the ability to provide our fans and viewers with the option of using the best available screen.

Favorite fictional character? You cannot really go wrong with Huck Finn.
 
When scientists from the future dig up a cable system from 2012, they will conclude that… ESPN was an amazing value.
 
My trick for keeping my email inbox from filling up? Never open an email more than once.
 
Worst thing I’ve ever heard someone say in a meeting. Let’s appoint a committee…
 
If I invest my own app it would… Belong to Disney per terms of my contract.
