MRC has tapped NBCUniversal alum Adam Stotsky as president of the newly created MRC Live & Alternative, which will absorb the operations of Dick Clark Productions. MRC has slowly been phasing out the Dick Clark Prods. moniker. Stotsky will oversee a division that produces major awards franchises including the American Music Awards, Academy of Country Music Awards and ABC’s annual New Year’s Eve special Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest.
Adam Stotsky is stepping down as E! president, putting an end to a 18-year tenure at NBCUniversal. Stotsky will work on his transition with Frances Berweick, president, Lifestyle Networks, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, who will step in to take over his responsibilities in the interim.
The former NBC marketing exec replaces Neal Tiles, who served as president of the male-skewing cable network for six-and-a-half years.
Adam Stotsky will leave the Peacock network as Robert Greenblatt continues to bring in former Showtime executives.
