A+E Networks UK has appointed former RTL Netherlands exec Marit Huiskamp as program scheduler for History Netherlands.

Working from the broadcaster’s Amsterdam-based Benelux office, Huiskamp (pictured) will be responsible for programming History’s forthcoming Dutch feed, which is due to launch later this summer. She reports to Benelux regional director Jessica Haagmans.

The new localized ¬†feed, which will be A+E’s first entirely Dutch channel, will provide customized programming schedule for the Netherlands. A+E Networks UK currently airs History and Crime + Investigation in the Netherlands on a pan-European feed.

Prior to joining A+E Networks UK, Huiskamp spent two years at Dutch media company RTL where she was responsible for broadcasting schedules, channel promotion and content creation.
