TLC Names Two Senior VPs of Programming

New TLC president and general manager Angela Shapiro-Mathes strengthened the network’s programming department, hiring Brant Pinvidic as senior vice president of programming and promoting Deborah Adler Myers to the same position.

Together, they will oversee all development and current programming for the channel, reporting directly to Shapiro.

Pinvidic -- who joins from GRB Entertainment, where he was senior VP of development -- will have primary responsibility for primetime.

For her part, Myers -- who has been with Discovery Communications since June 2005 and has been responsible for more than 500 hours of content across the programmer’s networks, including TLC franchise series Little People, Big World -- will lead daytime and fringe.
