Doyle most recently served as exec VP of music and talent for MTV and VH1, where she was in charge of music content and programming, talent booking, artist and industry relations, and music supervision. This included exec producing the annual MTV Video Music Awards, where she was instrumental (in 2014) in Beyoncé’s first-ever performance of her self-titled album in its entirety and (in 2015) signing Amy Schumer on as host.
With this role, which is newly created, Doyle will oversee live programming, tentpole events and specials, network talent development and celebrity relations. She will also be the network’s point person for the VH1 Save The Music Foundation.
“Amy is a multi-talented executive with a proven ability to build brands and talent and create pop culture moments that drive audiences across every platform” said McCarthy. “She’s a forward-thinking leader for this new era in media, and I couldn’t ask for a better partner while we continue to build VH1 and Logo as the premier pop culture brands.”
Doyle’s move comes on the heels of Sean Atkins’ appointment as president of MTV last week.
