Brockhage crafts the agreements for NBCU’s broadcast TV stations to be retransmitted by cable TV, satellite and telco platforms, where battles over pricing have intensified in recent years. “The good news is you’re usually able to find an agreement that works for both sides,” she says. “So the incentive’s there, and the market’s working.” In addition to retrans for broadcast, Brockhage negotiates cable network carriage transactions, TV Everywhere deals for Rio Olympics coverage and compliance with consent decrees/FCC orders approving earlier Comcast acquisitions.
