Golf Channel Tees Up Overleese For Key Operations Role

Golf Channel Tuesday named Dan Overleese as its new vice president of TV networks operations.

In this new role, Overleese will oversee the network’s engineering and operations.

“Golf Channel is very lucky to have Dan as part of our growing team,” Tom Stathakes, the network’s senior vice-president, programming, production and operations, said in a statement. “He brings to us a contagious enthusiasm to enhance our television production and has proven to be a top-notch leader.”

With more than 30 years of television experience, Overleese was a director of Emmy Award-winning shows for ESPN and later was the director of productions at PGA TOUR Productions. He joined Golf Channel in January 2008 as coordinating director, a position he held in network operations until his promotion.
