The president and acting chief executive officer of the CBS Corporation has nothing but praises for Armando Nuñez, the veteran international TV sales head of the broadcasting firm.
Nuñez has been promoted into a new position as the president and chief executive officer of the CBS Global Distribution Group.
In addition, he is assuming the post of chief content licensing officer of CBS Corporation. The newly created posts happen in light of the current executive reshuffling in the American media behemoth.
Joseph Ianniello, who was designated as acting CBS Corporation president and chief executive officer following the controversial resignation of Leslie Moonves, lauded the track record of Nuñez as a “best-in-class executive.”
The American media executive said that through Nuñez’s fresh appointments, he would be able to maximize the financial returns for CBS programming.
This would be made possible through his robust client connections globally. In addition, Ianniello mentioned Nuñez’s impressive performance of making distribution tactics and commercial opportunities all of which will benefit CBS.
With Nuñez’s new designations, among his responsibilities are managing a single branch that is unifying international distribution, content licensing, and domestic syndication.
Directly reporting to Ianniello, Nuñez will oversee the CBS All Access streaming service and the original content portfolio of CBS broadcasted on CW and CBS broadcast channels.
Furthermore, the CBS executive will also be in charge of a content library of over 10,000 episodes of programming, the non-CBS platforms, and Showtime, the premium cable and satellite TV channel.
Finally, Nuñez will keep his position as chief of CBS Studios International. This part of the New York City-based broadcast TV organization manages international distribution and format sales.
In this post, Nuñez administers 11 global channel ventures, local production of content, international content co-productions, and CBS’s ownership of Network Ten in Australia.
Since becoming a part of CBS in 1999, the new leader of the CBS Global Distribution Group has led the broadcast organization’s global operations as head of CBS Broadcast International.
Nuñez’s promotion comes after the departure of Scott Koondel, the content licensing CEO of CBS.
In addition, it follows after Paul Franklin, the head of domestic syndication for the network, has retired.
