Lisa Pedrogo played a key role in bringing CNN’s groundbreaking new IP-based facility in New York’s Hudson Yards to fruition. Her tenacity and generous leadership style have made her one of TVNewsCheck’s 2020 Women in Technology Leadership Award winners.
The recipients of TVNewsCheck’s annual Women in Technology Leadership Award — SMPTE’s Barbara Lange and WarnerMedia’s Lisa Pedrogo — are women who have contributed substantially toward advancing their industry technologically. The award supports the National Association of Broadcasters Education Foundation’s Technology Apprenticeship Program, which places graduating engineers, who are women or people of color, in broadcast industry internships. They will be honored in a virtual awards presentation and panel discussion on Oct. 19.
