Fox Sports taps Jones exec veepee, biz ops

Lawrence A. Jones, a well-traveled exec within Fox Inc., has been named exec VP of business operations at Fox Sports, responsible for overseeing such areas as production budgets and business/legal affairs.

Jones was most recently a senior VP at Fox Inc., having previously served as president-chief operating officer at Fox Cable (now the planned basic service FX) from March 1992 until last November. Before that, he spent two years as president of FNM Inc., Fox’s in-house production arm to supply “Fox Night at the Movies.” That division has since been folded into Fox Broadcasting Co.

Jones joined the studio as senior VP, business affairs, at Twentieth TV in 1988, following a five-year stint in that area at NBC.
