GSN Brings In Roberts as Programming Head: GSN has named former Sky Networks executive Jamie Roberts as head of programming, the network announced Wednesday. Mr. Roberts takes over from Ian Valentine, who left the network in June and currently has an executive position at start-up network ReelzChannel.

“Jamie Roberts brings over 10 years of production and programming experience to the network, and that, coupled with his thorough knowledge of European television formats, made him the ideal candidate for our programming chief,” said Rich Cronin, president and CEO of GSN. “Roberts has developed high-rated programs for Sky that include a diverse slate of genres, from live specials to reality series to game shows.”

Mr. Roberts worked at Sky for 10 years, serving in a variety of executive positions.
