Daniels hired as consultant at OWN

Former Lifetime topper to strategize with cabler's presidents

Former Lifetime president Susanne Daniels is working with OWN where she is serving as an executive consultant.

Daniels, who left the femme-skewing cabler in 2008 to spend more time with her family and has since been consulting for various nets, will provide guidance to OWN presidents Erik Logan and Sheri Salata.

She began her OWN duties this week, working out of the net’s Wilshire Boulevard offices. The cabler, which got off to a rocky start last year, is looking to Daniels to help develop a programming slate that will draw more viewers. The OWN aud is demographically similar to Lifetime’s.

Prior to arriving at Lifetime, Daniels was head of programming at the WB, where she shepherded series such as “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Felicity” and “Charmed.”
