Matthew Wolf, the director of global content acquisitions and partnerships management at Nickelodeon has left the kidcaster, Kidscreen confirmed. Wolf departed voluntarily, and there’s no word yet on where he’ll land.

Wolf has been at Viacom in various roles since 2007, when he started at Viacom Media Networks as a master control operator. He worked his way up to senior operations coordinator before jumping over to Nickelodeon out of the New York office as coordinator of digital/multiplatform programming in 2013. In that department he moved to manager and then director.

In 2017, he became the director of content strategy and planning and then stepped into his most recent role in September 2018. In that role, he previously managed the whole acquisitions process from pitch to series launch, as well as managing relationships with distributors.

He also helped run Nickelodeon’s Programming Team Internship Program, which aimed to recruit and develop a diverse group of students so the kidcaster had many options for future talent.

There is no word on who will be taking on his role moving forward.
