In a blockbuster shift in the executive ranks at CBS, one of the network’s top executives is stepping down and another veteran CBS exec will be getting a big promotion.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, CBS Entertainment Chairman Nina Tassler announced today that she will leave her post at the end of the year. Tassler has been with CBS for 18 years, including 11 years running the network.
Another CBS veteran, Glenn Geller, who has been with the company for 14 years, will become entertainment president. Geller is currently head of Current Programming for CBS Entertainment and CBS Television Studios.
Geller and Tassler will reportedly work together closely during the transition.
“Tassler will then turn her attention to her other passions, which include publishing and theater projects, though she’s expected to remain in an advisory role at CBS through at least 2017,” THR reports.
Tassler is reportedly the longest-tenured head of a broadcast network.
