Charles Nooney“I’ve been in the media business for 30 years,” says Charles Nooney, “and I’ve never seen the pace of change that has happened in the last three. A lot of it has been driven by people using mobile devices as their primary method of consuming video content and the increase in social networking.”

As chairman and CEO of MobiTV, an international “connected home and TV-everywhere solutions provider” based in the San Francisco Bay area, Nooney knows that keeping abreast of the latest trends and technological advances in the fast-paced, highly competitive media industry is key to survival. “I’m always learning,” says the 1980 UAB graduate.

It’s an attribute that has served him well throughout his career, which began with an interest in politics and a job making dog food.

“I always had a great love for politics and the political process,” Nooney says. “Part of my desire to get into politics was to have a better understanding of that.” He enrolled at UAB for his final two years of college with an urban studies major. “UAB allowed me to go to a world-class university in my hometown,” he says.
