OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network has named Timothy Kuryak and Jill Dickerson as vice presidents of programming.
The duo will oversee nonscripted programming, working with producers, writers, agents and distributors, in addition to editorial management with outside production.
Mr. Kuryak previously was vice president of West Coast production and development for Discovery Communications’ Planet Green. He also has served as vice president of Fox World Productions and the head of development/programming for ReelzChannel.
Ms. Dickerson joins OWN on Jan. 5 from her position as a head writer and consulting producer for “The Real World.”
“Jill is well known for her top-rated reality programming and passion for programs that tell real people’s stories. Coupled with Tim’s production experience on both the executive and producer level, they are perfect additions to our first-rate production operation,” Maria Grasso, senior VP of programming, said in a statement.
