High-Profile Departure for Cable Channel Deadline
Logo is losing its general manager, with Lisa Sherman departing the Viacom Network after running the day-to-day operations starting with its 2005 debut, reports Nellie Andreeva on Deadline.com.
"This marks an end of an era for Logo, started by then-President Brian Graden with Sherman as his top lieutenant," Andreeva writes.
In 2008, Sherman was named general manager and executive vice president.
"The move to put Logo under the MTV umbrella, reporting to MTV President Stephen Friedman, will likely accelerate the transformation of Logo from a network strictly focused on the LGBT community [into] one that caters to wider audience, which started last year," the piece notes. "It is unclear whether the group will drop Logo from its name as the channel gets so closely aligned with MTV."
