Joseph J. Lhota and John Adamovich Jr. will serve as co-chief financial officers of Rainbow Media Enterprises Inc., the company announced Friday.

Lhota had been executive vice president of corporate administration at RME’s parent company, Cablevision Systems Corp., as well as president of Cablevision’s Lightpath subsidiary.

Adamovich had been CFO and treasurer at Pall Corp.

Both executives report to RME CEO Thomas Dolan.

Cablevision expects to spin off RME -- which consists of its three national programming networks (AMC, The Independent Film Channel and WE: Women’s Entertainment), video-on-demand service Mag Rack, its Rainbow DBS HD direct-broadcast satellite offering and other national programming interests -- sometime in the fourth quarter.
