“To be here is amazing,” said White. “I never thought I’d see this day, even though I always thought UFC would be a success. Spike TV is a completely perfect partnership for us, and I'm truly honored.”

Launched in May 2003, the Promax / BDA Television Century Awards were created as an annual award to honor television's elite for their contributions to building brands. White was honored along with Sam Howe, head of marketing for Time Warner, Jordan Hoffner, Director of Content Partnerships for Youtube, and Susan Kantor, SVP Marketing for Warner Brothers.
