He’s one of the most respected, influential, and accomplished leaders in the history of sports media, and his career is a rare one, spanning both the executive suite and the front bench. His current role as executive producer and president, production and programming, for New York-based YES Network, is an appropriate exclamation point on a career that has engrained memories in the minds of sports viewers and altered the careers of countless sports broadcasters for nearly five decades. “Flip is an innovator who thinks outside the box,” says longtime New York Yankees play-by-play voice Michael Kay. “He sees things that others don’t see, through a prism of inventiveness and attention to detail. Most important, he’s a Hall of Famer in the way he treats his people." Taking the tour of NBC in the early 70s, Filippelli was smitten with broadcasting. He left the tour and got a job as a desk assistant. Thus was launched of one of the great careers in Sports Television. During his tenure at NBC Sports, he climbed the ranks to become the lead producer for the MLB Game of the Week; World Series, LCS's, All-Star Games, and Super Bowl Pregames. Besides baseball, Filippelli has either produced or had direct oversight into many of the world's biggest sporting events. While at FOX, he introduced full-speed replays, Super Shot "Slow-Mo" and "Catcher Cam". In 2003, Filippelli started along with George Steinbrenner what has become the gold-standard for RSN's, the YES Network, bringing network quality and sensibility into the regional sports landscape, setting the bar for all who have followed. Under Filippelli’s leadership, YES has collected a staggering 134 Emmy Awards (as of 2021). YES became the first television network to produce 3D and interactive MLB telecasts and was also the first to display continuous on-screen pitch counts during a game. Filippelli’s induction into the Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame is just the latest honor of his decorated career. In 2017, he was inducted into the prestigious Silver Circle by the Board of Governors NATAS, New York Chapter. In 2013, he was named Executive of the Year by NYU Business School. It's safe to say, few people have had a greater influence on what viewers see in the past half-century than Filippelli. “Flip has had an immeasurable impact on countless on-air talent and production personnel who have had the good fortune to work alongside him over his storied career,” says YES Network CEO Jon Litner. “I count myself one of those lucky ones. He has always been a Hall of Famer to me.”
