The Fox Television Stations group has named a new chief operating officer, with Fox News Co-President and Fox TV Stations CEO Jack Abernethy announcing the promotion of Sharri Berg to the post.
The move comes amid a flurry of changes among top management at Fox News Channel in the wake of the departure of network chief Roger Ailes.
Berg is a 30-year veteran of 21st Century Fox and News Corp. who has held dual positions with Fox’s cable news and broadcast divisions. She was involved in the launch of Fox News Channel almost 20 years ago and became Senior Vice President of News Operations for Fox Television Stations in 2005.
She will continue her current responsibilities with Fox News Channel and will now also oversee all initiatives and talent development for news programs on Fox Television Stations.
In making the announcement, Abernethy stated: “Over the past 11 years with FTS, Sharri has been an invaluable member of our executive team and has created a robust, efficient and powerful network of shared resources with Fox News. She is a unique leader whose innovative and strategic management approach will ensure that the stations, as well as Fox News, continue to develop the next generation of journalists.”
