CMT has hired Katie Buchanan as senior vice president of program planning and scheduling, the Viacom-owned network announced Thursday.
A nearly 10-year veteran of The Style Network, Buchanan (pictured) will relocate from Los Angeles to Nashville, where she will report to CMT president Brian Philips. In her new position she will control program scheduling and acquisitions and be responsible for their distribution on CMT's television, online, mobile and on-demand platforms.
At Style, Buchanan was most recently senior vice president of programming and acquisitions. Prior to that, she was part of VH1's West Coast original movies and series group after serving in on-air promotions in the network's New York office.
"Katie is a top strategist and fast-rising star,” Phillips said in a release. “She joins CMT as our slate of originals grows exponentially."
