GSN Sees Second Executive Exit


GSN’s interactive executive is the latest official to exit the network, which came under new leadership last year.

John Roberts, who was GSN’s senior vice president of digital media and interactive entertainment, has left the network.

In October, GSN senior vice president of marketing Dena Kaplan exited the service to join NFL Network, as senior vice president of marketing.

Both Roberts and Kaplan had been alums of the regime of Rich Cronin, who left as president of GSN last summer. Cronin was at GSN succeeded by David Goldhill, a former investment banker and former president of the Universal Television Group, Aug. 1.

Goldhill has started to make his own hires and assemble his own team. For example, earlier this week GSN announced that he had hired ESPN veteran John Zaccario as senior vice president of advertising sales.
