Bravo Ups Bianchi to VP of Program Planning, Acquisitions

Bravo Media has promoted Deirdre Bianchi to vice president of program planning and acquisitions.

In her new role, Bianchi will oversee the scheduling of all Bravo programming, all off-network and motion picture acquisitions and serve as the network's conduit to NBCUniversal's cross platform programmers. She will focus on the network's 2012 programming slate, which included the expansion of the Andy Cohen talk show Watch What Happens Live to five nights a week, that began Monday.

Bianchi will be based in New York and report to David Brewer, vice president of program strategy and acquisitions.

"Deirdre's invaluable experience and passion for television make her vital to the evolving programming landscape at Bravo," said Brewer. "We are fortunate to have her on our formidable team that will raise the network's programming to new heights in 2012."

Bianchi previously held the position of senior director of strategic program planning.
