ABS-CBN President, CEO and CCO and this year’s International Emmy Awards gala chair Charo Santos-Concio joined the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences board and its members in kicking off the 43rd International Emmy Awards slated this November.

Santos-Concio was personally welcomed by Academy chairman Fred Cohen during a dinner held exclusively in the famous Chateau De Versailles on 3 October where about 200 members of the international board, French government officials, and broadcasters convened.

Joining her in the trip are ABS-CBN Integrated Acquisitions and International Distribution head Leng Raymundo, Concept Development Group and New Media head Enrico Santos, and Acquisition Manager Rachel Simon.

Santos-Concio made history as the first Philippine TV network executive to be invited as Gala chair in the prestigious international award giving body. This not only recognizes Santos-Concio’s mark in the broadcasting industry but also ABS-CBN as a world-class content producer and media entertainment company.
