New position

Wendy Abas has been upped to the newly created position of manager of affil relations and promo for “Arrest & Trial,” which debuts Oct. 2, and “The Jerry Springer Show.” Abas, who will report to exec director of affil relations and promo Betsy Bergman, had been exec assistant to senior veep of programming and development Lonnie Burstein.

All members of the expanded department will work out of New York, except for Abas, who remains in Los Angeles.

In announcing the appointments, Susan Kantor, exec VP of marketing, added that Laura Harris has been named to replace Jeff Mielke as manager of finance and operations in New York. Mielke was promoted to account exec recently. Harris joins from Island Records’ Black Music division, where she was manager of operations.
