John Stankey HBO
Stankey has made his goal clear from the beginning volume. And to that end, he doesn’t believe it makes sense to keep WarnerMedia’s TV outlets in separate silos. HBO has always been its own entity, while Turner continued to operate as its own unit ever after Time Warner acquired the company in 1996.
But that’s about to change, as former NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt is expected to take on a large role overseeing both businesses. HBO and Turner had already reported to Stankey, but the AT&T veteran doesn’t have the creative background that Greenblatt has to start operating the two entities in tandem.
But at the same time, Plepler and Bloys had already been increasing HBO’s output in 2019, that means about 50 percent more in terms of hours. Now, with WarnerMedia’s networks (except its 50 percent stake in The CW) all under one creative oversight, expect resources to further shift and that number to jump even more.
