NBC runs Dempsey in VP sked slot

Exec to oversee scheduling

NBC just debuted a new addition to its executive lineup: Tim Dempsey has been named vice president of program scheduling at the Peacock.

Dempsey reports to Ted Frank, who was recently upped to senior vice president of current series and program scheduling at NBC Entertainment.

“We are very pleased to welcome Tim to our management team,” said Frank, who made the announcement. “We need a strong, experienced and insightful executive to oversee many of the day-to-day operations of our scheduling department and we look forward to having Tim fill this important role.”

Dempsey previously spent eight years at Fox, including the last four years as vice president of audience research. The exec handled research and marketing activities and assisted with the network’s scheduling, programming, finance, publicity and sales groups.

Prior to joining Fox in 1992, Dempsey also spent time in media research positions at ad agencies J. Walter Thompson and Young & Rubicam.

Frank was promoted to the web’s top scheduling post in June. He also handles the current programming department, overseeing production of all comedy and drama series.

Dempsey replaces Dan Harrison, who departed this summer to start a consulting business. Harrison is working with a number of entertainment companies, including the Littlefield Company.
