Farber doubles at MTV, M2

Matt Farber has been upped to senior VP, program enterprises, at MTV and named G.M. at the Viacom music video spinoff channel M2.

In the MTV post, Farber will continue to oversee both MTV Interactive (including MTV Online) and the MTV Radio Network. For M2, he will preside over distribution efforts for the thus-far poorly received MTV sister net, as well as local and interactive programming elements.

Additionally, MTV Networks has hired David W. Sussman to be senior VP and general counsel of law and business affairs, where he will be responsible for the management and operations of the company’s legal and business interests.

Sussman joins MTV from the New York Yankees, with whom he had served as executive VP and general counsel since 1989.
