Chief Executive & Executive Producer Fox Sports

The highest-ranking executive in the Century City-based sports network continues to oversee one of the most wellknown brands in sports TV, cable and streaming. Fox has two of the next three Super Bowls and the FIFA World Cup in November (as well as the Women’s World Cup in 2023). It is launching the USFL this spring and added UEFA and the Belmont Stakes to a lineup that already shows strong support for its college football and NFL coverage. Shanks and Mark Silverman, the president of national networks for Fox Sports, were recently ranked No. 4 on the Top 100 most influential people in sports by the Sports Business Journal – behind only the commissioners of NFL, NBA and MLB.
