Leonsis oversees a true over-the-top digital network that focuses on local sports, producing live events from the WNBA, AFL, minor league hockey and local high schools as part of subscription-based service launched by Monumental Sports & Entertainment. Leonsis was part of the talks last year that set up a long-term partnership with NBC Sports Washington, with NBC Sports Group taking an equity interest in the OTT service and Monumental taking an equity interest in the RSN.
