Lifetime fills planning post

Glenn-Chesloff to succeed Sternfeld

NEW YORK — Lifetime has filled one of its most important programming jobs — senior VP of planning, scheduling and acquisitions — with a dark-horse candidate, Leslie Glenn-Chesloff, who has resigned as VP and general manager of Tribune’s WPHL-TV Philadelphia.

Glenn-Chesloff, who succeeds Alan Sternfeld in the job, was on few industry tip sheets over the last two months as headhunters sounded out programming execs at networks ranging from Sci Fi Channel and Spike to MTV and Pax TV (Daily Variety, Sept. 23).

Although her cable-programming experience is limited, Glenn-Chesloff has served in a number of jobs as a TV-station exec. Before her three-year stint at WPHL, she was VP and general manager for WLVI Boston from 1997-2000.

Earlier, at WWOR New York, she was director of programming and creative services from 1994-97. She started her station career at WAGA Atlanta, where was director of programming, research and cable from 1988-94. Before that, she was director of syndication research for Columbia Pictures TV.
