More Personnel Changes at GSN1/03/2005 6:02 AM Eastern
GSN named Christopher Raleigh senior vice president of advertising sales.
Raleigh’s hiring is the latest personnel shift at the network, which also replaced its programming and distribution heads in the past year.
Raleigh, formerly VP of advertising sales at TechTV, succeeds Michael Sakin, who previously ran both ad sales and distribution at GSN.
Sakin resigned from GSN in October, one month after the network hired former Lifetime Television executive Jan Hatcher to head affiliate sales as senior VP of distribution.
Last May, GSN named former Sci Fi Channel executive Ian Valentine senior VP of programming. He replaced Bob Boden, who resigned in December 2003.
