A&E, Court TV, Oxygen Lose Ad-Sales Execs


New York - There was a changing of the ad-sales guard at three cable networks
late last week, as replacements were named for A&E Television Networks' Ron
Schneier and Court TV's Gig Barton.

Schneier, who's leaving AETN as of March 31, has been executive vice
president of sales and marketing since March 2000 and served as senior vice
president of sales before that.

Schneier, who has plans to enter the independent film business, will be
succeeded by AETN executive vice president Whitney Goit.

Current Oxygen Media senior vice president of sponsorship Charlie Collier
will replace Barton, who was Court TV's executive vice president of ad sales, in
January, the network announced on Friday. Before joining Oxygen two years ago,
Collier was AETN vice president of ad sales.
