Frances Berwick (pictured), president of Bravo Media, has been upped to president of Bravo and Style Media and given strategic oversight of The Style Network.

Style became part of NBCUniversal’s Entertainment & Digital Networks and Integrated Media division with the NBCUniversal-Comcast merger.

In her new role, Berwick, who has been with Bravo Media for 15 years  and has been president since 2010, will work with Style Network’s existing president Salaam Coleman Smith to drive the net’s growth, in addition to her Bravo responsibilities.

“Frances’ tenure at Bravo has been marked by industry-leading ratings and revenue growth,” said Lauren Zalaznick, chairman of NBCUniversal Entertainment & Digital Networks and Integrated Media. “She has been enormously successful in leading a team to create an immersive brand experience for the consumer.

“I know that she will bring that same vision for cultural zeitgeist and keen sensibility to Style as we evolve and grow this network in the months and years to come.”

Berwick was general manager of Bravo Media from 2008-2010, prior to her appointment as president.
