Christy Tanner, CEO of TVGuide.com and TV Guide Mobile, has transformed the company into an entertainment powerhouse with over 25 million monthly uniques on TVGuide.com and over 8.5 million mobile app installations. TV Guide’s app for iOS was a 2012 Apple Editor’s Choice. Its personalized Watchlist received a 2011 AdAge Media Vanguard Award. Currently, mobile active users and advertising revenue are surging, with category-leading engagement higher than popular weather and news apps. Notably, this growth is happening without a dime of marketing spending.
Tanner is an expert on turnarounds, mass-market digital audience trends, and our current golden era of television. Prior to TV Guide, she founded and operated digital businesses for The Washington Post Company and Reed Elsevier. Before that, she was an award-winning journalist who covered, among other things, cops and schools in Memphis, Tennessee.
