We are thrilled to welcome Jerry to the team and look forward to working with him.”

Gepner has also served as president of National Mobile Television, and has held the position of executive vice president for Fox Sports. He was co-founder and chief operating officer of Sportvision, the Silicon Valley company responsible for the ubiquitous First & Ten virtual first-down line. Over the course of his career, Gepner has been the recipient of five Emmy Awards and is a named inventor on 11 U.S. patents in the media technology sector.
