Susanne Daniels, president of programming for Viacom-owned MTV, is leaving the post to “pursue a new opportunity,” according to an internal memo issued by MTV president Stephen K. Friedman.
Programming oversight will be split between Lauren Dolgen, currently EVP of series development and head of reality programming, and Mina Lefevre, who is being upped to EVP and head of scripted programming.
Daniels joined MTV in 2012, following the departure of David Janollari, after programming stints with The WB Network (now The CW) and Lifetime Television. Series launched during her tenure include Broke A$$ Game Show and Are You the One?
In the internal email announcing Daniels’ departure, Friedman noted: “She’s been a strong creative talent for the brand, a thoughtful leader for the organization, and a great partner for me… We wish her all the best.”
