Sep 28, 2015  •  Post A Comment

Sony has made a move that appears to ensure stability for the studio’s TV operations, promoting industry veteran Steve Mosko to chairman of Sony Pictures Television, Variety reports.

“Mosko, who was previously president of SPT, has been with the studio since 1992 and has headed its TV operations for the past 15 years,” Variety notes. His promotion follows a period marked by turnover on the film side at Sony.

Said Sony Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton: “Under Steve’s leadership, Sony Pictures Television has become the industry’s largest independent television studio. Our media networks business has expanded to over 150 channel feeds around the world and the company is well-positioned for growth in both production and distribution. Steve is a remarkable executive and we are proud to have him at the helm of Sony Pictures Television.”

Variety adds: “On Mosko’s watch, Sony Pictures TV rebuilt its domestic scripted operation from scratch — after the previous Sony Pictures regime shut down its money-losing primetime unit — and expanded overseas with Sony- and AXN-branded channels in more than 180 countries. Mosko also oversees Crackle, the studio’s streaming video service and the GSN cable network.”

  1. Jerry – I know that Danny went through some diuflcfit times with SHU fans when he was a player at The Hall. Does he harbor resentment / ill will towards the university and or its administration? One would think that an alumnus of the university would take pride and want to better the school in which they came from. Clearly you have to be objective, as a reporter, but I would imagine / hope that you are a SHU fan, as you’re an alum!
