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.
Other past posts for McCray include SVP of programming at Oxygen Media, and roles at BET Networks and WABC-TV/Disney.
“Her success in strategic program planning and content development will be a big asset as we continue to build two networks and serve our audience with authentic programming tailored to fit their interests,” said Rice, in a statement.
