CSTV Picks a Rose


Bob Rose joined CSTV Networks as executive vice president, distribution.

Rose spent the past 14 years at Court TV, most recently as executive VP of affiliate relations. He was laid off in June following Turner Broadcasting System’s assumption of full control of the network.

At CSTV, he will be the lead executive in all negotiations and ongoing relationships with cable and direct-broadcast satellite providers, as well as nontraditional outlets such as wireless providers, telephone companies, hotels, restaurants and in-store and in-flight services.

Rose will work closely with all departments to expand the distribution of both CSTV and Mountain West Conference-specific service the mtn., along with responsibilities for analysis and action necessary for changes in the regulatory and competitive environments.

He will also work with CSTV’s programming department to create strategies for emerging new-media platforms including wireless, broadband and video-on-demand.

Rose reports to CSTV CEO Brian Bedol.
