Martin to segue into advisory position at AMC Networks

Kim Martin, prez and general manager of WE TV, is stepping down from the post after nine years.

Martin will transition to an advisory role at WE TV’s parent company AMC Networks, and will report to the org’s CEO Josh Sapan.

“Kim is an extremely talented executive with an impressive track record at WE tv,” AMC Networks COO Ed Carroll said in an internal memo to staffers. “Under her leadership, the network’s distribution has grown, viewership is up and WE tv is a top 3 women’s network on Thursday and Friday nights …I want to thank Kim for her many contributions to the company. Her leadership, commitment to excellence and her unflagging enthusiasm have made her a key member of the executive team, and has cemented WE tv’s reputation as a great place to work.”

When asked about a successor for Martin, AMC Networks declined comment. WE TV does not have an executive to serve as acting prez while the company searches for a successor.
