The Game Show Network has lifted long-time senior executive Mark Feldman to the post of president and CEO.

Effective immediately, Feldman will take over from David Goldhill, who is stepping down from the Sony Pictures Entertainment and AT&T Entertainment Group co-owned company after a decade at the helm.

“GSN TV is unique in the entertainment television landscape in our persistent commitment to our core audience through game show programming in all its forms, including classic, contemporary and, increasingly, interactive shows,” said Feldman in a statement. “GSN Games has become a world leader by providing our players compelling opportunities to play anytime, anywhere, whether on their own or in a huge variety of always-available competitions.”

“I am grateful to Sony and AT&T to be entrusted with the challenge of continuing our growth in a rapidly changing media landscape, and I look forward to working closely with them in the days ahead,” he continued. “I could not be more excited to team with GSN’s many outstanding professionals throughout the globe in crafting the next chapter of our development.”

Feldman joined GSN in 2008 and has since overseen legal and business affairs, business development and GSN’s innovation lab.

Prior to joining the Santa Monica-headquartered network, Feldman held a variety of senior titles, including as president of Univision Home Entertainment and Consumer Products, CEO of TuTv, CEO of Magna Entertainment and COO of E! Entertainment Television.

GSN consists of GSN TV, an entertainment network reaching nearly 80 million subscribers; and GSN Games, made up of social, mobile and online games companies.
