Ovation TV has promoted Lori Hall to vice president of program planning, scheduling and acquisitions, the network announced Wednesday.
“Lori is an invaluable member of our programming team and has been responsible for helping the network achieve significant ratings increases year over year,” said Scott Woodward, Ovation’s EVP of programming and productions. “During her tenure with the company, she has developed a keen sense of what our viewers want so expanding her remit to include acquisitions was a natural progression for her and the network.”
Hall is responsible for creating branded “destination nights,” which include the network’s Morning Canvas and Ovation Spotlight blocks. She has headed program scheduling for the network since joining Ovation in 2011, will be adding program acquisitions to her list of responsibilities with the new position.
“I’m very excited to be taking on Ovation’s acquisition responsibilities at this time in its evolution,” said Hall. “The network is truly becoming a multi-platform media company and licensing content for those platforms is a big priority for us. I’m looking forward to attending markets like Mipcom where I have the opportunity to talk with content creators and distributors of all sizes who may have properties available to suit our brand, as well as our linear and digital needs.”
