Late-night host Conan O'Brien joked at WarnerMedia's upfront pitch to advertisers on Wednesday that his personal choice for the as-of-yet-untitled, upcoming streaming service from the media company would be StankeyVision.

The laughably bad name was a nod to O'Brien's new boss, WarnerMedia CEO John Stankey, who stepped off the stage moments earlier, after welcoming the audience of advertisers, agencies, journalists, and other industry people in New York to the "new WarnerMedia."

Nearly a year after phone company AT&T formed WarnerMedia through the acquisition of legacy-media company Time Warner-and made big structural and leadership changes-the company's top brass is in place. The executives who are forging WarnerMedia's future were on full display at the upfront presentation.

"You'll see some familiar faces on stage today but make no mistake, we are a new company," Stankey said.

These are the power power players behind WarnerMedia's vision for the future of TV.
