Jacqueline Coleman

Senior Vice President of Marketing, Broadcasting and Game Presentation, Washington Nationals

In the past two years, the Nationals’ diversity, equity and inclusion efforts have included a monthly DEI newsletter distributed internally, new in-game content highlighting racially diverse notable figures and historical facts, and the creation of an immersion program for underrepresented college students. Those accomplishments trace back to Coleman, a founding leader and co-chair of the Nationals’ DEI Council, which was formed in 2020. Under her leadership, the council has recruited women and diverse staff from across the organization who have helped the front office strengthen its commitment to DEI. Coleman, who joined the Nationals in 2008, has prioritized increased dialogue with ownership about DEI matters, including increased investment in the council’s recommendations.

CNBC media reporter Alex Sherman joins SBJ’s John Ourand to discuss Warner Bros. Discovery’s streaming strategy. The two talk about the company’s interest in sports rights, with Sherman noting that the company is in a cost-cutting mode, which is one reason why it has not been active in media rights negotiations over the past several months.
