NG Channel Makeover, Executive Edition

Howard Owens

Steve Schiffman is “exiting” as president of the National Geographic Channel (U.S.). His replacement is Howard Owens, a founding managing director of Reveille Productions, which is behind such shows as NBC’s “The Biggest Loser.” (Reveille is owned by Shine, which is owned by News Corp, which owns the National Geographic Channel.)

The Channel also named Courteney Monroe, formerly of HBO, to its newly created post of Chief Marketing Officer.

Chris Albert is now a senior VP of communications worldwide and talent relations; he replaces Russell Howard.

For more details on this executive makeover, see The Hollywood Reporter and The Washington Post.
