Former Travel Channel exec Brigitte McCray has taken up the role of  SVP of original programming and production at U.S. cable channel TV One.

McCray will provide strategic direction for all original programming, and oversee all development and current production for TV One and its sister network Cleo TV.

She’ll be based in TV One’s Silver Spring headquarters, and will report to TV One and Cleo TV general manager Michelle Rice.

Previously McCray was the VP of programming, planning and strategy for Travel Channel, where she developed and managed network acquisitions, stunts and specials. She also led brand research and took part in the development of current programming.
