CBS announces new head of entertainment

CBS executive Amy Reisenbach has been named head of the network’s entertainment division and will oversee all creative departments during prime time, daytime and late night, CBS President and CEO George Cheeks announced Wednesday.

Reisenbach has been with CBS since 2005, beginning as a manager of current programming for CBS Studios and progressing through various positions as a programmer for networks and studios over the past 17 years. She succeeds longtime CBS Entertainment CEO Kelly Kahl, who recently announced that he will be stepping down from his role in December after 26 years with the network.

“Amy is a brilliant, creative leader and an incredible, very collaborative leader who has worked closely with all parts of the network and our studio partners for many years,” Cheeks said in a statement.
