Gary Quinn began his career at NBC Sports as a graduate intern from the West Virginia University Sport Management program in May of 1995 and has worked his way to his current role of vice president of programming and owned properties. During the last twenty-five years, he has successfully cultivated the growth of the NBC Owned Properties Group. His group is responsible for the creation, operation and development of events such as the American Century Championship, National Dog Show, PNC Championship and All-American Bowl. Under Quinnn’s watch these properties have generated more than $250 million in profit for the division.
Over the last decade, Quinn has added programming acquisition and the management of programming partnerships to his roles and responsibilities. He oversees the relationships with each of the USA Olympic governing bodies, Notre Dame Football, Triple Crown and Breeders’ Cup horse racing and various international rugby organizations. He currently manages more than 1,000 hours of programming across NBC, NBCSN and Olympic Channels. Recently, Quinn used his entrepreneurial spirit to create NBC Sports Pub Pass, a subscription service for bars and restaurants.
