Mosko to top TV foundation

Sony Pictures TV prexy Steve Mosko is the Academy of TV Arts & Sciences Foundation’s new chairman.

Mosko, who will serve for two years, replaces longtime chairman Tom Sarnoff. Sarnoff segues to the newly created chairman emeritus position and will also serve as a member of the TV Acad’s exec committee.

The ATAS Foundation unanimously elected Mosko to the volunteer post Monday.

The group also runs “Living Television,” a new course for UCLA extension students.

Mosko, who has served on the TV Acad’s exec committee for the past three years, said he hoped to grow the foundation beyond its current functions. “In addition to the programs that have been put in place under Tom’s leadership, which we hope to continue to nurture, I intend to develop new opportunities that respond to the rapidly changing television business,” Mosko said.

TV Acad chair Dick Askin said he encouraged Mosko to pursue the Foundation chairmanship.Mosko has served as president of Sony Pictures TV since 2001, handling all of Sony’s U.S. TV operations. Mosko’s other org work includes serving as chairman of NATPE in 2000; he’s also a member of the Museum of TV and Radio’s Los Angeles board of governors.

TV Academy prexy Todd Leavitt also serves as president of the ATAS Foundation. The foundation’s other programs include a college internship program, the College Television Awards, a visiting professionals program and a faculty seminar for college professors.
