Oprah leads 20 media mavens in Forbes 'Top 100 Women's' power list

MUMBAI: The list is out. The Forbes' rankings of the top 100 list of the most powerful women in the world has a total of 20 female media doyens as well.

While the female media heavyweights may not have attained celebrity or mass popularity status, their claim to fame is most certainly the media mammoth institutions they run - NBC's Today Show, ABC's Good Morning America, CNN, Buena Vista Pictures, People magazine, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and Cosmopolitan, to list a few.

While Harpo chairman Oprah Winfrey was at the number nine spot, Pearson chief executive Marjorie Scardino followed closely behind at number 18. Others who made it within the top 50 slots were Disney Media Networks president Anne Sweeney who ranked 33, Time Inc. chairman and chief executive Ann Moore at 38, Harry Potter famed author JK Rowling at 40, NBC's Today Show co-anchor Katie Couric at 47, MTV Networks chief executive Judy McGrath at 49 and Sony Pictures Entertainment vice chairman Amy Pascal at 50.
