NBC comedy development executive Gina Girolamo is moving to NBC Universal Television Studio as VP of comedy programming, while the studio’s Renate Radford will join the network after being promoted to VP of comedy development.

Ms. Girolamo most recently served as VP of comedy development at NBC, where she helped develop “My Name Is Earl” and the upcoming mid-season comedy series “Andy Barker, P.I.” She will report to NBC’s Shelley McCrory, senior VP of comedy development, who announced the staff change Monday.

Previously Ms. Girolamo was director of primetime series for the former NBC Studios. She joined NBC Studios as a manager in the Saturday morning and family programs department. Before joining NBC she was a coordinator in primetime programs for the WB Network.

Ms. Radford will now report to NBC’s Senior Vice President of Comedy Development Jeff Ingold. She spent two years as a director of comedy at NBC Universal Television Studio after working as a manager of comedy development at NBC Studios before the NBC and Universal merger in 2004.

A former NBC associate, Ms. Radford served as an assistant to then-NBC Entertainment president Jeff Zucker. She began her career as a writer’s assistant on the mid-1990’s sitcom “Jenny.”
