Noriko Kelley has been promoted to executive VP of program planning and scheduling at CBS Entertainment.
Kelley succeeds and will report to Kelly Kahl, who was recently named president of the division. Kelley has been senior VP of programming planning and scheduling since August 2012. In her new post, Kelley’s primary responsibility is overseeing the program planning and scheduling of all prime-time programming for the CBS Television Network. She will also supervise coordination between CBS programming divisions and the Network’s respective operations in sales, marketing, affiliate relations, news, sports and research, as well as with the CBS Television Station Group.
“I’m excited to promote Noriko to this critical position,” said Kahl. “I obviously value scheduling and understand its importance to CBS’s overall success. She has an outstanding skill set for this job—she’s extremely intelligent, resourceful and insightful. Noriko is also one of the hardest-working execs I’ve had the pleasure of working with and will transition seamlessly and excel in this new role.”
