Before Prism, he was director of programming at Viewers Choices.

“I am extremely excited to have Gary on board as part of the senior management team at Live,” Malin said. “We plan to move quickly and aggressively in Live’s expansion in the television business, and Gary, given his wealth of experience and relationships in the business, will be an integral part of the growth.”

“I am thrilled to be working at Live and am eager to take on the challenges that are ahead of me,” Rubin said. “It is wonderful to be working again with Amir and I look forward to joining him, Bill Block and Mark Curcio in making Live the preeminent independent in the industry.”
