MTV reorganizes executive lineup

Aissa to depart network

MTV is letting several execs go and re-assigning several others as part of a re-org under new programming chief Tony DiSanto.

Exec veep of talent and series Rod Aissa is leaving the net, along with three other execs.

DiSanto is grouping development into three teams, net said, with senior veep of series development Liz Gateley overseeing reality and scripted, senior veep of scripted Chris Linn taking charge of production and production management, and a third group tasked with scheduling, distribution and new media that will be headed by an as-yet unnamed exec.

The re-org at MTV comes as the net struggles to find its footing as ratings slip and auds turn to online and other platforms. Lois Curren had been touted by execs as the savior when the net upped her in February, but exec abruptly left in April.

Structure remains complicated, however, as DiSanto is overseeing many of its development projects but Curren has retained oversight of several shows, including the net’s reality project with Menudo.
