Blacker has been through two different take overs by Rupert Murdoch, sold indoor golf machines though he cannot hit a golf ball and become an expert in Market Research even though he flunked high school algebra and geometry over four times and barely graduated from the Horace Mann School in Riverdale New York. He has never taken any job with the idea it was going to be a long-term career. His attitude was always "I'm going to learn something in this job, and I'm going to have some fun while I'm doing it. And what I learn will make me more valuable to the next place I go.
His mantra: "Most people don't understand a simple fact: Getting a job is a job in itself."
Blacker is a widower and has two sons, Peter, 39, EVP of Digital and New Business for Telemundo and Andy, 37, SVP of Marketing for SCREENVISION. His two sons have had over five different jobs to date in their successful careers.
When not working on a major project Steve is often kayaking in Westhampton Beach, NY or traveling for pleasure all over the world. He is an ardent reader, heavy movie and theatre goer and enjoys each day to the fullest.
