“Stephanie has been instrumental in the success of our ‘Love & Hip Hop’ franchise since its inception,” said Scott-Young. “To put her in the role of overall executive producer for the franchise will enable us to take full advantage of the successful programming we’ve created for VH1, to ensure the continued success of each ‘Love & Hip Hop’ series and subsequent spinoffs and to prepare for even greater franchise expansion.”

Prior to the promotion, Gayle has served as supervising producer, co-exec producer, exec producer and showrunner on various series within the “Love & Hip Hop” franchise.

Previously, she spent a decade at Columbia Records where she served as VP of marketing. She also headed the marketing department at Sanctuary Urban Records. Gayle’s career in entertainment began in the A&R department at Geffen Records, and throughout her music career, she worked with Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean, Destiny’s Child and Beyonce, whose L’oreal Paris campaign she also oversaw, while working at Wilhelmina Models.

The “Love & Hip Hop” franchise, which reached over 100 hours of programming in 2014, is co-produced for VH1 by Monami and Eastern.
