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.
