Mike Darnell, President of Alternative Entertainment who oversees alternative programming, reports directly to Reilly.

"Joe is not only an inspired and creative marketing strategist, but he should own the patent on the concept of 'team builder,'" said Reilly.

In addition, Earley created and introduced the network's highly successful "So Fox" branding campaign.

"I am incredibly grateful for this amazing opportunity, which Kevin and Peter have given me," said Earley. "Having been at FOX for almost two decades, it's been a privilege to work alongside the most creative, innovative and driven executives in the business; and I'm excited about where we - collectively - are taking the network."
