Nyhl Henson’s immense industry knowledge, network and influence will be indispensable to the DJ Central team as we grow our operations globally in 2013. An innovator by nature, Nyhl is best described as a cable television programming pioneer. An early leader in recognizing the value of cable television programming, Henson was instrumental in the conversion of Warner Communications’ Star Channel into a satellite-delivered service known as “The Movie Channel”. Nyhl served as the first general manager of Nickelodeon TV and was a key contributor to the development of MTV from Nickelodeon’s “Pop Clips” program.

After leaving Warner, Henson became vice president of programming and production with Oak Media Development, where he pioneered the pay-per-view genre and launched its network with the Leonard-Hearns and Holmes-Cooney championship boxing matches, alongside prestigious events such as the “Rolling Stones” and “The Who” in concert. He was also the founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Country Music Television, and holds board positions with Broadspot World Wide Wireless, Inc., and National Lampoon Entertainment.

Nyhl is the Chairman of DJ Central Digital Hong Kong, one of Gravity Stars entertainment content partners. He is considered an industry leader and early proponent of the development of the wireless broadband business model and he has successfully deployed some of the nation’s first profitable wireless systems. We are honoured to have Nyhl as our Chairman.
