GSN's SVP Steps Down
« on: May 13, 2008, 08:25:13 AM »
GSN's SVP Jamie Roberts is stepping down from his post once the network finds his replacement. He will be opening up his own production company, which he has been thinking about doing for some time.

Any thoughts on his time at GSN?

For the originals 'Grand Slam' and 'Thats The Question,' acquiring O'Hurley 'Truth' & 'Feud' plus 'Russian Roulette' and for having an impressive number of classics on the schedule I'd say his tenure was good to us.

I'll be awfully fascinated to see who's landed as his replacement.  Mr. Roberts was, to be specific, the Senior Vice President of Programming, which inevitably means whomever replaces him WILL impact the scheduling of the network. I just simply hope whoever is brought in doesn't make things worse (As far as ultimately insignificant things like television network programming goes, the scheduling of modern GSN is rather poor, to put it lightly)
