Bravo Promotes Berwick To President


NBC Universal’s Bravo Media is promoting Frances Berwick to president of the cable property. Berwick, who has been with the network even before NBCU took control of it in 2002, is being elevated from her role as Bravo’s EVP/GM, a post she has held since January 2008. She will continue to report to Lauren Zalaznick, President, NBC Universal (NYSE: GE) Women & Lifestyle Entertainment Networks. Berwick’s first job at Bravo was in 1996 and involved overseeing the long-running series Inside The Actor’s Studio. Bravo, and the rest of NBCU’s female-centric content holdings, is considered particularly attractive to Comcast (NSDQ: CMCSA), whose bid for 51 percent stake in NBC is still pending, as it works to build more interactive ad functions into its system.
