StudioDaily announced recently its 50 honorees on its second-annual list of the StudioDaily 50 — key creatives and technologists whose leadership and influence are breaking new ground in media and entertainment.

Miguel Santos, general manager for Myx TV, a channel owned and operated by ABS-CBN International, was included in the list, under the category of Independents.  The list includes honorees from the likes of Marvel Studios, Paramount Pictures and Encore.

“We’re proud to present the StudioDaily 50, once again identifying a broad range of hard-working professionals,” Bryant Frazer, editorial director and associate publisher of StudioDaily, was quoted from their announcement. “The list honors executives in corporations large and small, pioneering creative thinkers, technologists who make it possible to dream on a screen, and an array of specialists from all corners of the industry.”

Santos was described by StudioDaily as “a force against typecasting in the entertainment industry.” Also, under Santos, “Myx TV has joined campaigns encouraging political involvement and discouraging bullying in minority communities.  Santos continues to advocate for diversity in the industry as he spearheads an expansion of Myx’s web-focused digital content initiative.”
