Gemstar-TV Guide International Inc. has named Ryan O’Hara chief operating officer of its TVG Network.
In his new role, O’Hara -- who had been serving at Gemstar-TV Guide’s senior vice president of business development and strategic planning since June 2002 -- will oversee the horse-racing network’s wagering, financial, legal and advertising-sales operations.
He will also manage TVG’s development activities with track and online partners and coordinate with the company’s affiliate-sales group to secure long-term carriage deals.
The company is currently searching for a president for the network.
O’Hara, who is based in Los Angeles, will continue to report to Gemstar-TV Guide CEO Jeff Shell until a new president of TVG is named.
Mark Wilson -- who had been president and CEO of TVG since its acquisition by then-TV Guide Inc. in 1998 -- recently assumed the network’s chairman role.
