Today is an exciting day for NBCU Cable Entertainment.  With the debut of Esquire Network, we’re offering something truly unique…an aspirational lifestyle network aimed at the underserved, upscale male audience.  It’s a “white space” we’ve identified on the media landscape…and we’ve staked a claim with a broad range of programming that celebrates the interests and passions of men today.  It’s got everything from fashion and style, to food and drink, to travel and entertainment …all at one smart, sophisticated stop.

Adam Stotsky and his talented team have not only developed and acquired terrific content designed to resonate with their target audience, they’ve created an incredibly cool multiplatform environment to showcase it.  I urge you all to check it out…go to EsquireTV.com/channelfinder to learn where to find it in your area.  In recognition of Adam’s tireless efforts, I’m pleased to share that he’s been promoted to president of Esquire Network, effective immediately.
