Anne Sweeney

President, Disney/ABC Television Group

As co-chair, Disney Media Networks, and president, Disney/ABC Television Group, which includes The Walt Disney Company’s global entertainment and news television properties, Anne Sweeney has been called the most powerful woman in entertainment. Before her tenure at Disney, she spent 12 years at Nickelodeon, earning a reputation as a turnaround artist who hires creative people and lets them do their thing.
