President - Parents Television Council
Mr. Winter spent 15 years with the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) serving in numerous management capacities for the GE-owned media conglomerate in Los Angeles, New York and Europe. He also participated in the creation of MSNBC, the cable and online news joint venture with Microsoft Corporation.

Mr. Winter worked at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM), where he led the studio’s Interactive Division and its online and video game publishing ventures. He was also president and chief operating officer at FasTV, Inc., an internet media company. Prior to his work with the Parents Television Council, he was the co-founder and Chief Operating Officer of Desktop TV, a high tech media firm that delivered live broadcasts of business-oriented cable programming to the enterprise marketplace via internet protocol.

Mr. Winter is the architect of the PTC’s national campaign for Cable Choice. As a father, he believes it is critical that parents be given the opportunity to select and pay for only those cable channels they want and not channels bundled by their cable operator.
