Exec named president of distribution

NEW YORK — CBS TV has promoted Scott Koondel to the new title of president of distribution, acknowledging his successful sale to cable TV of off-network series such as “NCIS,” “Criminal Minds” and “Everybody Hates Chris.”

In his new job, L.A.-based Koondel will continue to pitch rerun programming to buyers in cable TV and various digital-media platforms, including video-on-demand and cable-network websites.
