Power Players: Tom Werner, Boston Red Sox
Boston Red Sox
A legend in the television business by producing shows such as “The Cosby Show” and “Roseanne,” Werner was part of the Red Sox’s new ownership group in 2001. Even with his storied television background, Werner gives NESN CEO and President Sean McGrail a lot of autonomy to run the network. But that does not stop Werner from knowing the minutiae of the network’s ratings performance and staying in the middle of the network’s talent decisions.
