Toronto, Canada-based DHX Television has appointed Gary Finnegan as VP of programming strategy.
Finnegan will report to Joe Tedesco, SVP and GM of DHX Television, a division of DHX Media. In the new role, Finnegan will guide the company’s content creation and acquisitions strategy.
Finnegan joins DHX from Turner International, where he most recently served as senior director of content for Turner APAC’s portfolio of kids channels, including Cartoon Network, Boomerang, Toonami and POGO.
The new hire comes at a critical time for parent co DHX Media, which is currently undergoing a strategic review and considering a possible sale following disappointing financial results. DHX Media VP Ken Faier also recently left the Halifax-based media conglomerate to found his own company, Epic Story Media.
