CNN announces senior appointments

MUMBAI: CNN International has made two senior level appointments, laying the foundation for future growth and development across CNN?s global network.

Journalist and news programming executive Katherine Green has been appointed to the lead position of senior vice president of CNN International programming. Green, most recently vice president/news director of WTTG/Fox 5 News in Washington, D.C., will be based at the network?s world headquarters in Atlanta. In addition, Mike McCarthy, managing editor for CNN International, has been promoted to the new position of vice president of coverage and feature programming.

In her new role at CNN International, Green will oversee all of the editorial production, program development, network talent and day-to-day operations of CNN International. CNN International executive VP, MD Tony Maddox says, ?Katherine brings a unique and formidable track record in programming innovation, a wealth of editorial talent and really exciting ideas to this job. This is one of the key appointments for the international group, and Katherine?s exceptional management skills are what we need as we aggressively move into an era of digital development and growth for the network.?

During a career spanning more than 20 years, Green has been instrumental in launching new and innovative news broadcasts and winning numerous awards, including more than a dozen Edward R. Murrow awards, several Emmy awards and other honors from the Associated Press and other organizations. She has a long track record for both market growth and leadership in various U.S top 10 markets including Washington, D.C, Baltimore, Tampa/St. Petersburg, Fla., and New York.

Green said, ?CNN epitomizes global news with a quality and integrity that other networks can only aspire to match. To be able to shape CNN International for the future is a rare opportunity and a challenge I relish.?

For his new role, McCarthy will remain based in Atlanta and will oversee major breaking news and the growing strand of feature programs produced in CNN?s London, Hong Kong and Atlanta production centers. ?Mike is an exceptional journalist and newsroom leader, and his promotion solidifies a management team exceptionally equipped to energize our programming and create content not just for television but rapidly growing platforms inside and outside of CNN,? Maddox adds.

McCarthy has served as CNN International?s Atlanta-based managing editor since November 2002. Prior to this appointment, he was senior executive producer for news and business coverage from CNN?s regional production center in London, where he was instrumental in creating CNN International?s feature strand as well as relaunching the European morning wheel of programming with integrated news and business coverage.

McCarthy said, ?One of the keys to our success in the future is harnessing the incredible reach of CNN International?s resources to create new and engaging multi-platform programming for an increasingly diverse and sophisticated audience?.

McCarthy joined CNN as a senior producer, business news in May 1999. He previously held the post of deputy programme editor at the London News Network, responsible for London Today and London Tonight.
