Cohen-Cutler given sr. VP stripes

Exec is a 16-year vet of ABC

NEW YORK — ABC has upped exec Olivia Cohen-Cutler to senior veep in charge of network standards and practices.

The Alphabet created the position of senior veep — Cohen-Cutler previously was veep of standards and practices — as a way of reaffirming its commitment to vetting all programming.

“Olivia’s legal and business sense — coupled with her consistently timely insight into the sensibilities of our diverse audiences — have proven major assets to (Disney-owned) ABC over the years,” Walt Disney exec veep and general counsel Alan Braverman said.

Weighing sensibilities

Cohen-Cutler’s department determines the acceptability of all entertainment programming, promotional materials, PSAs and advertising airing on ABC Television and ABC Radio Networks.

The department, with offices in L.A. and Gotham, also assists Disney-owned ESPN and other Disney cable channels.

Cohen-Cutler will continue to serve as a liaison to outside parties interested in content issues, such as academic institutions, business alliances, community associations and medical groups.

Previously at ABC, Cohen-Cutler was veep of television business affairs and as veep of labor relations for the West Coast. She arrived at the net 16 years ago and remains based in Los Angeles.
