Report: Sony Pictures Television Chairman Mosko Departing

Steve Mosko, chairman at Sony Pictures Television, is departing the company after 24 years, according to a report in Variety, which said negotiations to extend Mosko’s contract had failed.

A Sony Pictures Television rep declined comment.

In September, Mosko took on the chairman title after a long stint as president, with Sony Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton calling Mosko “a remarkable executive.”

Mosko oversaw global television production, distribution of feature film and television content, and the studio's international networks, including digital channel Crackle and cable net GSN.

Sony Pictures Television shows include The Blacklist, The Goldbergs, Shark Tank, Breaking Bad and Outlander, along with newer series such as Netflix’s Bloodline and AMC’s Preacher. SPT also produces the game show stalwarts Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy!
