Teicher, most recently executive VP, media sales, at 20th Television, will report to Jonathan Katz, the COO and head of entertainment for the national networks unit, which includes Ion, the Katz Networks and Newsy.

As we bring Ion into the fold and combine our networks, his experience positioning top brands and creating unique and powerful marketing solutions for advertising partners across multiple platforms will be a tremendous asset,” said Katz.
