Telemundo taps senior veep

Top programming job still up for grabs

MIAMI — U.S. Hispanic net Telemundo formally announced Friday the hiring of Adriana Ibanez in the newly created position of senior vice president, scheduling.

She was most recently VP of programming at Colombian broadcaster Caracol, with whom Telemundo has a co-production accord.

Ibanez reports directly to Telemundo prexy-CEO James McNamara.

The NBC subsid has yet to hire someone for its top programming job, the exec VP of programming and production position held by Manuel Martinez-Llorian until March 15.

Telemundo did beef up its programming team last year, hiring Mauricio Gerson (formerly of USA Networks Latin America) and Alejandro Garcia (formerly of Sony Pictures Intl. Television), both of whom joined in late December as senior veepees in the department.
