Disney-ABC Television President Anne Sweeney Tops THR‘s Women in Entertainment Power 100 List

The Hollywood Reporter is out with its annual Women in Entertainment Power 100. For the third straight year, Anne Sweeney, co-chairman of Disney Media Networks and president of Disney/ABC Television, tops the list.

Sweeney says her proudest moment this year was ABC’s Day of Giving across all the network and syndicated programming. The network raised $19 million for the Red Cross for victims of Hurricane Sandy. “She has a unique combination of professionalism and warmth,” Katie Couric — who also makes the list this year — says of Sweeney.

NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment chairman Bonnie Hammer, CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler, OWN CEO Oprah Winfrey and PBS president and CEO Paula Kerger also made the list.

Other fun facts from the THR list: Tina Fey gets starstruck by local New York City anchors and Couric’s ringtone is “I’m Sexy and I Know It,” by LMFAO. “It’s a joke,” the “Katie” host says.
