NewBay Media Reorganizes Television Titles
NewBay Media has realigned its television group comprising Broadcasting & Cable, Multichannel News, Next TV and Ratings Intelligence.
Under the reorganization, Melissa Grego will transition from B&C editor-in-chief to consulting editor, where she will continue to write her B&C column Mel’s Diner as well as blog for the site. She will also produce NewBay events, including B&C’s Keynotes & Cocktails: Women of… event series and Next TV Summit & Expo, as well as represent the brand at conferences and events. Grego is launching her own company, focusing on projects for women in business.
“Leading B&C as the editor-in-chief has been the privilege of my career. The entire B&C team inspires me every single day,” said Grego. “I look forward to continuing to work closely with my NewBay and B&C colleagues as I chart a new adventure with a special focus on projects that promote gender diversity.”
In addition, Mark Robichaux, formerly editor-in-chief of B&C and more recently Multichannel News, will serve as the editorial director for all of the TV sector brands. Dade Hayes, currently executive editor at B&C, will become editor, assuming Grego’s day-to-day responsibilities. Kent Gibbons and Jeff Baumgartner will lead Multichannel News and Next TV, respectively. Hayes, Gibbons and Baumgartner will report to Robichaux.
