Madison Square Garden Co. has tapped TV biz vet Ryan O’Hara as president of content, distribution and sales.

“As we continue to seek ways to strengthen our legendary brands and pursue strategic growth opportunities that expand our business, it is critical that we have the strongest and most experienced management team in place,” said Hank Ratner, MSG prexy-CEO.
