CBS Entertainment has promoted Sharon Vuong to the role of senior VP, alternative programming.
Vuong succeeds Chris Castallo , who earlier this month announced plans to leave the network when his contract expires this summer.
In her new role, Vuong is tasked with developing new alternative programs, including reality series, game shows and other non-scripted programming. She will also oversee CBS’ current slate of reality franchises, including Survivor, The Amazing Race, Big Brother and Undercover Boss. She will report directly to Glenn Geller, President, CBS Entertainment.
Vuong joined CBS in 2011 as director, alternative programming. She was promoted to VP alternative programming in 2012, and from 2013 to 2017 served as VP alternative series development.
This isn’t the first shakeup in CBS’s reality department. Last week, Susan Levison was named SVP, alternative programming at CBS Television Studios.
