Chris Ripley

CEO, Sinclair Broadcast Group
Change from 2018: Newcomer

Sinclair completed the year’s biggest sports deal in May when it picked up the 21 Fox Sports-branded regional sports networks in a $10.6 billion deal. Combined with the nearly 200 local TV channels it owns, not to mention Tennis Channel and Stadium, Sinclair instantly became one of the most powerful companies in sports media.
