Comcast Corp.-owned Outdoor Life Network named former Fox Sports Net executive Mark Fein as its senior vice president of programming and production.
Fein, who will oversee the network’s original-programming development, spent seven years at FSN, most recently as VP of programming and acquisitions for the nationally distributed service.
The appointment is the first major executive shift under new OLN president Harvey Gavin. The former E! Entertainment Television executive took over in February, replacing longtime president Roger Williams.
The network also said it is teaming up with the editors of Outside magazine on a new weekly series counting down the best of adventure athletes and extraordinary travel destinations.
Premiering July 3 at 10:30 p.m., Outside Magazine’s Ultimate Top Ten is billed as the ultimate guide and crib sheet for heart-stopping adventure. The fast-paced countdown show will be hosted by outdoor adventurer Tyler Harcott.
