“I am very excited to be able to bring Paul into the A+E Networks fold to head up FYI,” said Nancy Dubuc, president and CEO of A+E Networks. “Paul has his finger on the pulse of the dynamic lifestyle world. Coupled with his rich background in media and technology, I know he will lead the team to take FYI to the next level in both the linear and digital realms.”

In 2009, Greenberg was EVP and GM of TV Guide Digital where he also tripled revenue and grew the site’s monthly uniques from four million to 21 million.
