<span class="articleLocation”>Viacom Inc is expected to announce
changes to its executive ranks, as new chief executive Bob
Bakish seeks to turn around the ailing media company, two
sources told Reuters on Wednesday.
Viacom is expected to promote Sarah Kirshbaum Levy, the
chief operating officer of its Nickelodeon network, to chief
operating officer of its global entertainment group, the sources
said. Viacom created the group late last year to combine its international division with its music and entertainment group as
well as TV Land and CMT.
Additionally, Viacom is expected to make a handful of
executive cuts in its music and entertainment group, which
includes cable networks Comedy Central and MTV and had been led
by 25-year veteran Doug Herzog, who left the company this week,
the sources said.
The sources wished to remain anonymous because they are not
permitted to speak to the media.
