U.S. arts net Ovation TV has promoted Lori Hall to VP of program planning, scheduling and acquisitions.

Hall has headed up program scheduling for the cable net since she joined in 2011. Two years later, she was promoted to VP of program scheduling, and her latest promotion expands her responsibilities to include program acquisitions.

During her tenure, Hall has created Ovation’s programming blocks ‘Morning Canvas’ and ‘Ovation Spotlight,’ which focus on performing arts as well as arts documentaries.

“The network is truly becoming a multi-platform media company and licensing content for those platforms is a big priority for us,” Hall said in a statement. “I’m looking forward to attending markets like MIPCOM where I have the opportunity to talk with content creators and distributors of all sizes who may have properties available to suit our brand, as well as our linear and digital needs.”

She will continue to report to executive VP of programming and productions Scott Woodward.
