Viacom-owned cable network VH1 has tapped Nina L. Diaz (pictured), former senior VP of East Coast production and development, to the post of executive VP and head of reality programming.

In her new role, Diaz will be charged with overseeing all reality development and production for the Love and Hip Hop broadcaster. She will report to VH1 president Chris McCarthy.

Diaz steps into the programming role following the recent departure of West Coast development and production head Jill Holmes.

Both Holmes and Diaz were previously positioned to fill the vacated head of programming role left by Susan Levison‘s departure from VH1.

Since joining the network in 2014 as senior VP of East Coast production and development, Diaz has developed and provided oversight to some of VH1′s most successful series, including Love and Hip Hop, Black Ink Crew and Mob Wives, as well as the forthcoming programs Amber Rose Show and the rebooted America’s Next Top Model.

Diaz began her career at Viacom sister net MTV where she had a hand in developing such series as My Super Sweet 16, Cribs and The Osbournes.
