Fox Restructuring TV Unit

Jan 12, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Look for  Peter Rice, chairman of entertainment for Fox Broadcasting and Fox Sports Chairman David Hill to get expanded roles under a reorg going on, according to a number of media reports.

According to the account by B&C editor Ben Grossman, sources have told him that "Fox National Cable Networks President Rich Battista could end up either being reassigned within the company or no longer with the company."

Furthermore, Grossman writes,"The cable networks, including FX chief John Landgraf, would report directly into Peter Rice, while the regional sports networks, including chief Randy Freer, would fall under the umbrella of Hill."

Still unknown, according to a number of the reports is how–if at all–the reorg will affect Fox Networks Group chairman Tony Vinciquerra. Both Hill and Rice current report to Vinciquerra.
