Penn People in M&E – Matt Blank W’72

From an article on the Wharton website found here:

“Matthew Blank, W’72, Chairman and CEO of Showtime Networks, attributes much of his success to his business degree. The Wharton grad now heads up the channel that airs Queer as Folk and Soul Food, and sits on the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors of the Sundance Channel. He came to Showtime in 1988 from HBO, where he had been the Senior Vice President of Consumer Marketing, and became the cable network’s President and Chief Operating Officer in 1991. We sat down with the TV titan as he waxed nostalgic about ‘60s TV, Wharton in the Vietnam era, and the mastication habits of Mike Tyson. ”
