There are some new faces in place following last month’s restructuring at Corus Entertainment. Replacing ex-Corus Kids director of original productions Bonita Siegel is Jocelyn Hamilton, the newly minted VP of content for Corus Kids Television.
Hamilton is now supervising content for Treehouse, YTV and Discovery Kids Canada as well as Nelvana Studios, and reports to Scott Dyer, EVP of Corus Kids.
David Wiebe is taking up the new post of director of content at YTV. He previously served as Nelvana Studios’ development exec for Teletoon. Jamie Piekarz has likewise been installed in the new post of director of content for Treehouse and Discovery Kids Canada, leaving her role as executive producer at Treehouse.
According to a Corus spokesperson, these new positions are meant to ‘provide a single entry point for content for our broadcast brands.
John Rooney, meanwhile, will continue to serve as director of programming at YTV; with Brenda Nietupski remaining as director of programming at Treehouse and Discovery Kids Canada. Amy Sutton is staying put as manager of acquisitions and administration.
