Waterman has had a lead role in Fox’s Seizing Opportunities Forum that focused on shifting audience demographics, as well as broadcasters internal think-tank program, Fox Innovators Group.

“Shana is a top-flight programming executive and a self-starter,” Fox entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly said. “She executed above and beyond on every level.”

Previously a manager of development at Timberman/Beverly Prods., Waterman joined Fox as director of current programming in 2006.
