Julian Giraldo (left), exec at Colombia broadcast giant RCN, will relocate to D.C. to become exec VP of international channels. He will be responsible for building up the distribution and commercialization of RCN’s three pay networks in the U.S., NTN24 News, TV Colombia and RCN Telenovelas.
MundoFox, half owned by RCN, will not fall under his purview. Giraldo will also remain in charge of RCN Cine as it builds on its mandate to produce more pics in the English language. It has made “Default” and “Gallow’s Hill,” to date, both seeking U.S. distribution but already sold worldwide.
He replaces Lucas Capas, who took up the post of VP at Mundo Fox late last year.
NTN24 is currently on DirecTV only. TV Colombia is on some cable channels and RCN Telenovelas is currently in Colombia only.
RCN has offices in Washington, New York and Miami.
