    Inae Wilson
    SVP, Broadcast Distribution
    Fox Broadcasting Company

    As Senior Vice President, Broadcast Distribution, for FOX Broadcasting Company (FBC), Inae Wilson, a fifteen year Fox veteran, is responsible for day-to-day operations, negotiating distribution agreements, enforcing contractual commitments, program clearances, preemptions, on-air/co-op promotion and managing relations between FBC and several domestic broadcast television affiliates.  Ms. Wilson represents FBC to stations on issues of inventory and affiliate financial contributions.  Ms. Wilson was part of the team that negotiated the Primetime Inventory Purchase Agreement, a deal that requires affiliates to pay FBC a fee for primetime programming. FOX was the first network to orchestrate such an agreement and pioneered a change in the affiliate/network financial model.

    Additionally, Ms. Wilson is the primary executive responsible for distribution of the MundoFox broadcast network.  This has involved analysis of the marketplace, identification of potential broadcast affiliates, negotiation of affiliate agreements, coordination of the network with the new affiliate, and monitoring and guiding stations.

    Prior to her current role, Ms. Wilson was Vice President, Broadcast Distribution for FBC.  She is a self-starter who has learned the broadcast business from the bottom up.  Once she got her foot in the door as a production assistant on the early FOX comedy “Martin,” she’s liaised with most every aspect of the business – programming, marketing, news, ad sales, finance, engineering, sports, operations – as a result she possesses a solid knowledge of the broadcast business that informs her no-nonsense, candid style, and gives her credibility with affiliates.

    A native of Los Angeles, Ms. Wilson is married with one son.
