Viacom-owned cable network Spike TV announced on Sunday the resignation of President Albie Hecht, citing creative differences.

No replacement was named.

MTV Networks Group President Herb Scannell said in a statement that Mr. Hecht “has accomplished much as a producer in film and television, and we’re beginning discussions about how he might continue working with our company in those capacities.”

Mr. Hecht oversaw the transformation of TNN into Spike TV, where he launched “The Joe Schmo Show” in 2003. He also launched the network’s first two signature events, the “Video Game Awards” and car awards show “Autorox.”
