TV ONE, the Silver Spring, Maryland channel has named a new VP of Creative Services. Coming over from CNN is SCOTT PERKINS (yep, that’s him in the pix) who was Design Director for 10 years and had 50 people reporting to him. Before CNN, he was with BET for 8 years. This is cool: His set design work has brought him guest appearances on “Oprah” and “Trading Spaces” as an interior design expert. Oh, this is such a cool guy!
Here’s a great name: ELEO HENSLEIGH. The PROMAX board member has news to share. She’s now the Chief Marketing Officer of ION Media Networks. Based in NYC, although ION is based in sunny West Palm Beach, Hensleigh comes over from Disney-ABC Cable Networks Group. Previously, she was Creative Director and Senior Vice President, Marketing and Promotions for FX Networks, and also served as Vice President and Creative Director, on-air promotion at Nickelodeon/Nick at Nite. She’s a Wesleyan U grad. Well Dunne!
And a healing “get well” goes out to GRAEME NEWELL, who is hobbling along on a sprained ankle.
Lots of news on the horizon. Come back tomorrow!
