Microsoft announces new Media group manager Microsoft Corp. announced that Katherine Styponias will join the Media & Entertainment Group as general manager, where she will lead the business development team working with major content suppliers. Styponias joins Microsoft from Prudential Equity Group LLC, where she served as senior vice president and the senior cable, entertainment and satellite equity analyst.
She was named in The Wall Street Journal’s “Best on the Street” poll for earnings-estimate accuracy and stock picking in the entertainment category. She was also recognized in Institutional Investor magazine’s All-America Research Team poll and was named the No. 1 earnings estimator for the media sector in the Forbes.com/StarMine Analysts Awards for 2004.

Along with Microsoft's position as a major supporter or HD DVD, this move could help establish them as a major player in online content delivery. According to Styponias, "After 12 years covering developments in entertainment, I'm looking forward to turning my knowledge and relationships into opportunity for the industry," Styponias said. "This is a time of tremendous change in the way entertainment is being delivered, and Microsoft is a great place to influence the game."
