TV Guide President Ryan O’Hara has relinquished his post to pursue "a new opportunity in New York," reports B&C.
Since assuming the position in 2005, O’Hara led a change in programming that included acquiring off-network showings of "Ugly Betty" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm," in addition to creating original programs.
"We have a strong leadership team and a focused strategy to build TV Guide Network into a branded celebration of entertainment and fandom, so this is the right time for me to move on to another new entrepreneurial opportunity that has arisen," O’Hara said in a statement. "I enjoyed my eight years at TV Guide tremendously, and I believe the trajectory of the business has never been better. It is in perfect hands with Lionsgate and One Equity Partners."
