Diaz is credited with developing some of the network’s biggest hits, including “Love and Hip Hop,” “Black Ink Crew” and “Mob Wives” — as well as the forthcoming “Amber Rose Show” and the network’s revival of “America’s Next Top Model.”
“Nina has an exceptional ability to translate pop culture through stories and characters that attract massive, passionate audiences,” said VH1 President Chris McCarthy. “Very few people have Nina’s talent and instincts to consistently develop shows that not only reflect culture but also define it.”
“VH1 is the destination for pop culture and I couldn’t be more passionate and enthusiastic about the brand and our projects,” added Diaz. “Chris has brought so much to the network and I am incredibly fortunate to work with such a bold, dynamic leader. We have the most talented team in the business and I am thrilled to be a part of it.”
Prior to joining VH1, Diaz began her career at MTV where she developed and launched some of the most iconic shows in history, including “Cribs” and “My Super Sweet Sixteen.” She’s also credited with “The Osbournes,” after suggesting the family was worthy of their own series while meeting them on the set of “Cribs.” Following her stint at MTV, Diaz produced shows including “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” and “Mob Wives” for the Weinstein Company and Left/Right before transitioning to VH1.
