Exec to continue as topper of ABC Kids

ABC Kids topper Jonathan Barzilay has been upped to the newly created post of senior vice president and general manager of Toon Disney, ABC Cable’s all-animation net.

Barzilay will be responsible for managing all daily operations for Toon Disney. In addition, he will continue to serve as senior vice president and general manager of ABC Kids, where he oversees the net’s One Saturday Morning, ABC’s weekly five-hour kids’ programming block.

Leadership

“Jonathan’s wide-ranging experience in television and his current focus on children’s programming for ABC are ideal preparation to assume operational oversight of Toon Disney,” said Anne Sweeney, president, ABC Cable Networks Group and president of Disney Channel Worldwide, to whom Barzilay will report.

Since joining ABC in 1990, Barzilay has served as general manager of children’s programming for the ABC Television Network, vice president of the ABC Television Network Group and counsel to ABC News and to the Capital Cities/ABC Owned Stations division.
