Rich Ross (C’83) just was named #14 on out.com’s 2nd annual “Power 50” list.
“When it comes to program-ming for children and adolescents, the president of Disney Channel Worldwide probably has more clout than anyone else on television. Since his appointment in 2004, Ross—who is responsible for 62 Disney channels and offshoots including CDs, toys, games, clothes, and international tours—has spearheaded tween juggernauts Hannah Montana and the Emmy-winning High School Musical, whose 2007 sequel attracted the largest audience ever for any basic cable telecast and spawned a soundtrack that became the number 2 album of 2007.”
Speaking of Rich, last week, he just confirmed in the trades that Disney is now writing High School Music 4. Can someone say cash cow?
Ever since I’ve been at Penn, I know Rich has come back from time to time to speak to undergrads looking to get into entertainment. He has been very helpful to both undergrads and alumni…
Back in 2003, Rich was a panelist in our Penn in Pictures event with Todd Lieberman (C’95, Partner at Mandeville Production company) and Joan Harrison (C’81, Bloomers, then Literary Agent).
