Ethnicity: Fox traces his African ancestry to Antonio Johnson who, at age 17, arrived at the Jamestown Settlement (then, a British colony) from the Congo Empire in 1621.
“I’m a storyteller. Building understanding between people, nations and cultures is what I do”, says Fox, whose achievements include 7 Emmys and the Meritorious Honor Award from the International Broadcasting Bureau for leadership, programming Initiatives and staff development.
Fox created, produced and/or supervised distribution of TV channels and programs including “Since JFK: The Last Twenty Years”, “Esta Noche”, “Window on America”, “Fragile Ring of Life” and “Studio Four” for ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS and WORLDNET TV networks and/or affiliates.
In 2011, Fox created and led the launch of FNX: First Nations Experience, the first TV channel (PBS) dedicated to Native American cultures. Now, in 22 broadcast markets, FNX is available to 42 million viewers.
When appointed by President Clinton as Director (CEO) of WORLDNET Television, Fox expanded the operation’s global reach to more than 1,400 broadcast and cable outlets. Managing $30 million budget and staff of 260 professionals, Fox, in less than 48 months, repositioned WORLDNET to command an audience larger than that of CNN International.
Fox currently serves as Director of Telecommunications and Assistant Professor of Mass Communications at Wilberforce University - our nation’s first private black university - where he is “helping to develop some of the industry’s future leaders.”
