Multinational mass media corporation Time Inc. has promoted Josh Oshinsky to the role of executive producer for sports video and VP of programming for Sports Illustrated TV (SI TV).

In the expanded role, Oshinsky will now take on oversight for original and acquired video content for SI TV, Time’s newly minted streaming video network. He continues to report to Ian Orefice, head of programming for Time Inc., and Chris Stone, editor-in-chief at SI Group.

Oshinsky moves into the role after having most recently served as supervising producer for the Sports Illustrated Group at Time Inc.

Since joining Time Inc. in 2016, Oshinsky has played a crucial role in expanding the brand’s sports video offering via platform-specific videos, short-form franchises, long-form documentaries and live productions around key events like the NFL and NBA drafts.

His credits while at the New York-based Time Inc. include virtual reality series Capturing Everest; feature-length documentary 89 Blocks, spotlighting a high school football team in the challenged community of East St. Louis; and the forthcoming Sports Illustrated: True Crime, a collaboration with Jerry Bruckheimer Television

Prior to joining Time Inc., Oshinsky spent 16 years producing such sports-related TV shows and films as Showtime’s The Franchise, ESPN’s ’30 for 30′ documentary Four Days in October and SI’s annual docuseries The Making of Swimsuit.

“Josh is a leader who brings a unique eye and storytelling ability specific to sports video, and he has taken the incredible Sports Illustrated brand and made it come to life on all platforms and in all formats in a way that provides an unparalleled holistic consumer experience,” said Orefice in a statement. “Judging by the increase in video views and engagement that Time Inc. Sports Group has achieved, it is clear that Josh’s creative output resonates with audiences and will continue to do so with the Sports Illustrated TV platform.”
