HONG KONG — Raymund Miranda has been named general manager of Disney Channel Philippines.
The latest channel, the eighth outside the U.S., will launch sometime later this year.
It will be distributed exclusively through Cable Boss to local cable operators.
Miranda, who is based in Manila, was formerly vice president of creative services at GMA Network.
“Raymund’s strong track record in managing and developing new ventures makes him the ideal choice to build Disney Channel into the No. 1 children and family channel in the Philippines,” said Edward Borgerding, senior vice president and managing director of Walt Disney Television Intl. Asia Pacific.
