He is credited with producing more than 175 episodes of “Behind the Music,” as well as many other VH1 documentary series and specs.

Among his upcoming VH1 projects is “Ultimate Albums,” which premieres in March.

Rolontz, who most recently worked as a Gotham-based producer specializing in music and variety programming, will be responsible for overseeing VH1’s music event programming. That includes the annual “VH1 Divas Live” concert, “VH1/Vogue Fashion Awards,” “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony & Concert” and “My VH1 Music Awards.”

Previously, as VP of video production for Sony’s Columbia Records Group, Rolontz oversaw the production of all musicvids and visual productions for Columbia Records and associated labels.
