Nickelodeon has promoted Keith Dawkins to the role of SVP and GM of Nicktoons and TeenNick.

In his newly expanded role, Dawkins adds oversight of TeenNick, Nickelodeon’s 24-hour network for teens, to his current role as GM of Nicktoons. Dawkins will run the day-to-day operations for the teen network, including the on-air programming, scheduling and marketing, and will work with MTV Networks’ Affiliate Sales organization on the channel’s distribution rollout.

Dawkins will continue reporting to Sarah Levy, COO, Nickelodeon/MTVN Kids and Family Group.

As the first GM of Nicktoons, Dawkins manages the daily operations of the network and has spearheaded several key partnerships, including a deal with Marvel Animation that brought three new series to the network.
