Online magazine The Root has published its annual “Root 100” list, a selection of people who “represent the ideals of The Root.” Among those named this year: NBA star LeBron James, musician Wyclef Jean, actor and Tony Award winner Viola Davis… and our very own Co-Chairman David Sutphen.
From The Root’s write-up about the list:
Sutphen exploits his rich background in politics, media and law to help shape the national policy debate on regulating the Internet. An attorney with the Brunswick Group, he also serves as co-chairman of the Internet Innovation Alliance, a coalition of media businesses, nonprofits and other stakeholders committed to establishing America’s rules of the road regarding the Web. Before his current roles, Sutphen served as a senior executive at Viacom, chief of staff for former Rep. Harold Ford, as Sen. Edward Kennedy’s general counsel and an attorney for the Recording Industry Association of America.
