ESPN Elevates Jamie Horowitz to Vice President, Original Programming and Production

Newly-created position designed to further strengthen ESPN Production and Programming

Following ESPN President John Skipper's recent structural announcement, the company today announced plans to further strengthen its Production and Programming areas by promoting Jamie Horowitz to Vice President, Original Programming and Production, responsible for all original programming at ESPN.

In this new role, Horowitz will focus on identifying new programming needs and then coordinating the production effort to strategically meet those needs. The scope will include creating new shows, producing segments to enhance existing shows and oversight of potential new projects.

"For the past five years, Jamie's invaluable experience and passion for television has made him vital to the evolving programming landscape at ESPN," said Norby Williamson, ESPN's executive vice president, programming and acquisitions. "We are fortunate to have him as a key member of our team as we continue to further the creative interaction and cooperation between Production and Programming that will raise the network's programming to new heights in the coming year."

Horowitz said, "My goal is to further ESPN's commitment to the highest quality sports programming and to work with the talent teams we have in place to enhance our content. The sports business is an ever-shifting landscape and I am excited to have the opportunity to help strengthen this dynamic area of our business."

Horowitz will continue to have production oversight of an existing portfolio of programming in which he has been creatively involved including ESPN2's First Take, SportsNation and Numbers Never Lie as well as ESPN Sports Saturday on ABC. He will also continue to supervise ESPN's Sports Emmy-nominated World Series of Poker programming. Horowitz is based in Bristol and will report directly to Williamson on all original programming while continuing to report to Marcia Keegan, VP Production, on all existing projects.

Horowitz joined ESPN in 2006 as a senior producer on ESPN Original Entertainment. He was promoted to coordinating producer in the studio and event production department in 2009. He was a co-creator of SportsNation, Numbers Never* Lie and Winner's Bracket (now ESPN Sports Saturday on ABC).

Before joining ESPN, Horowitz worked at NBC Sports, where he created, developed and produced The National Heads-Up Poker Championship.

A Boston native, Horowitz graduated magna cum laude in 1998 from Amherst College in Amherst, Mass. He is a four-time Sports Emmy winner for his work on NBC's coverage of the 2000 Summer Olympics and 2002 Winter Olympics, as well as his work on the NBA on NBC.
