Toronto-based GlassBox Television on Monday named Vanessa Case as its new executive VP of programming, charged with programming and scheduling the broadcaster’s expanding stable of specialty channels, effective immediately.
The move comes as GlassBox Television, which is majority-owned by Michael MacMillan’s Blue Ant Media, looks to expand its niche channels Travel+Escape, Bite TV and AUX TV.
At GlassBox, Case will oversee the programming and scheduling of the broadcaster’s acquisition and original content.
Case moves over to GlassBox from Shaw Media, where she oversaw specialty channel programming and scheduling as both senior director and VP of content.
She managed specialty channels such as HGTV Canada, History Television, Slice, TVtropolis, National Geographic Channel and BBC Canada.
“Having Vanessa join our executive team is another step towards our vision of building a strong content-rich media company,” said Raja Khanna, GlassBox Television CEO.
“Her extensive programming experience and track record of successfully growing specialty television audiences will be a huge asset to our brands,” he added.
