The CW Television Network continued to name members of its executive team Wednesday, announcing two executives on the business and financial side of the new broadcast network.

Mitch Nedick was named executive VP and chief financial officer, reporting to John Maatta, the network’s chief operating officer. Mr. Nedick had been executive VP of finance and operations of The WB Network since 2000, and before that served as VP and CFO of Tribune California Properties.

Michael Ross is the executive VP of business affairs, also reporting to Mr. Maatta. Mr. Ross joins the new network from The WB, where he has worked since 1997, most recently as senior VP of business affairs. Before joining The WB, Mr. Ross was senior VP of business affairs at ABC Productions.

The appointments come a day after the network named Rick Haskins executive VP of marketing and brand strategy.
