NBC U Media Studios ups Ahr

Exec named senior VP of alt programming

NBC/Universal Media Studios has upped reality exec Meredith Ahr to senior VP of alternative programming and development.

Exec will handle alternative development for the Peacock, both via in-house productions and with outside producers. She continues to report to NBC/UMS alternative exec VP Paul Telegdy, who announced the promotion on Tuesday.

“Meredith is a passionate, laser-focused creative executive,” Telegdy said. “She’s the producer’s ultimate ally at the network, blending big-picture marketing instincts with a real feel for storytelling. Simply put, she makes shows better.”

Ahr had been vice president of alternative programming and development, a job she had held since October 2007. As a part of the network team, Ahr has worked on series such as “America’s Got Talent,” “Celebrity Apprentice” and “The Marriage Ref.”

Ahr has worked in a variety of capacities at the Peacock since first joining the company in 2001 — including a stint as assistant to former NBC U chairman Bob Wright.
