NBC Universal TV Networks Distribution promoted Brian Hunt to senior vice president of marketing and sales strategy.

The company said Hunt will oversee a realigned marketing team that will support NBC U’s affiliate-sales division and work closely with all of its cable-TV properties to extend marketing campaigns to multiplatform distributors, cable, satellite and telco providers.

Hunt will report to Bridget Baker, president of NBC U TV Networks Distribution.
