“PowerPoint certainly has its place in business, but if I’m enthusiastic about an idea, I much prefer to rely on my gut and my passion and pitch the hell out of it in person. Decks may give you the facts and figures, but nothing can replace passion and energy to get a ‘yes’ from the room.”

Already in charge of USA Network and the SCI FI Channel, the No. 1 and No. 5 ranked cable networks, Hammer got a promotion in March. She now also oversees original scripted programming for all NBC Universal cable entertainment networks.
