Jackie Bradford, President and General Manager, NBC4 Washington.
As President and General Manager, Bradford oversees the largest bilingual newsroom in Washington D.C. that is home to NBC4, the most highly rated television station in Washington, D.C., and Telemundo 44, a new Telemundo-owned station that launched in in January 2018. Under Bradford's leadership, NBC4 earned its highest market share in its history. Also, two regional bureaus and a local investigative team were launched to better serve local audiences, and Bradford helped to refocus the stations' community advisory board and create an employee culture that focuses on engagement and feedback.
