Fortson back at Rivera ING after Genesis

Kevin Fortson, who signed on as VP of development for Genesis Entertainment in May, has ankled his post to return to Geraldo Rivera’s New York-based Investigative News Group.

The exec will resume his duties as ING’s VP overseeing production (for “Geraldo”) and administrative matters–a post that has remained vacant since Fortson left for Genesis.

In confirming the move, Genesis noted that Fortson’s departure was due to personal reasons.

A spokesman for the syndicator denied the departure had anything to do with the performance of the company’s two new firstrun entries, “The Whoopi Goldberg Show” and “Infatuation,” neither of which has taken off in the ratings.

Genesis intends to fill the vacant development position, with an appointment possible by the end of the month.
