A leadership change has taken place at Style Network, which has been a part of Lauren Zalaznick’s portfolio since Comcast took over NBCUniversal in January, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The latest move has Bravo Media President Frances Berwick adding the title of president of Style Media. Salaam Coleman Smith remains president of Style Network.
Berwick retains oversight of the day-to-day operations of Bravo and adds strategic oversight of Style, the story reports. Berwick has been with Bravo for 15 years.
The story reports: “During Berwick’s tenure, Bravo has increased overall programming by 21 percent last year with an additional 10 percent slated for 2011. In 2010, Berwick was elevated from general manager to president of Bravo Media. In her expanded role, she’ll continue to report to Zalaznick.”
Zalaznick, who is chairman of NBCUniversal Entertainment & Digital Networks and Integrated Media, said in a statement: "Frances’ tenure at Bravo has been marked by industry-leading ratings and revenue growth. She has been enormously successful in leading a team to create an immersive brand experience for the consumer. I know that she will bring that same vision for cultural zeitgeist and keen sensibility to Style as we evolve and grow this network in the months and years to come.”
