Close Takes Over MTVN Ad Sales


MTV Networks said late Wednesday that it promoted Hank Close to president of ad sales. The company also said that Sue Danaher, who had been executive VP and general sales manager for Nickelodeon, Nick at Nite, The N, TV Land and Spike TV, “decided to leave the company.”

Close, who worked previously as executive VP of ad sales for the TVN Music/Comedy/Logo Group, will run MTVN’s entire U.S. sales organization across all of the company’s brands.
