“With Paramount Network’s launch a few months away, Viacom continues to merge its central operations under Kevin Kay and Keith Cox,” reports the estimable Lesley Goldberg for the Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed.

Goldberg adds, “As part of the effort, about 20 employees from Spike (which is being rebranded as Paramount Network in January), TV Land and CMT are being trimmed from Viacom’s workforce.”

The story says that “Spike exec vp programming Tom Zappala will exit as TV Land’s Karen Cummins, Scott Gregory and Deva Newman add Paramount Network to their titles.”
