BU alumnae among Hollywood’s most powerful
In The Hollywood Reporter’s 20th annual ranking of the females who rule the business, three BU alums were listed in the top 10, including Bonnie Hammer (COM ’71), Chairman, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment: #3, Nina Tassler, President, CBS: #7, and Nancy Dubuc (COM ’91), President, History and Lifetime Networks: #9.
An excerpt from The Hollywood Reporter article.
TV, especially the world of cable, is ascendant, and women disproportionately are driving it. It’s no coincidence that four of the top five women on this year’s Power 100 list come from the medium (the extraordinary Amy Pascal alone represents film at No. 2).
Just a few years ago, film dominated entertainment with the most prestige, the greatest revenue and the biggest impact on our national conversation. Not anymore.
