Karen: This is the PKF Texas: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook®. I’m Karen Love, Director of Practice Growth and we’re talking about women in business today. Any my guest today is Susan McEldoon, President, and General Manager of KHOU in Houston. Susan, welcome to the Playbook.
Susan: Thank you. It’s nice to be here.
Karen: Thank you. I wanted to talk to you in comparison to the industry that I’m in and directors within the accounting industry and women in your industry. I know that we’re increasingly having more women that are managing partners. And I was wondering how that’s playing out in your world.
Susan: Sure. Well most TV stations in the United States are owned by either the broadcast networks or big media companies like Bi-Lo or Meredith or Post-Newsweek, Gannett.
Susan: And what I have found that has really changed in the last five years is the number of women that are actually running these companies.
Susan: In fact my CEO is a woman in Dallas that runs Bi-Lo. There is a woman that runs the NBC O&O station group. There’s a woman now that runs the Post-Newsweek group.
Susan: So this is a really nice change.
Karen: It really is. Well thank you for sharing that. And if you have any more thoughts on that we’d love to have you back.
Susan: Thank you.
Karen: Thank you. This has been a Thought Leader production brought to you by the PKF Texas: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook. Tune in next week for another chapter.
