“This is an important time of transition for Turner, as the merger with AT&T will allow us to innovate even more quickly and create more value for fans, distributors, content creators and advertisers,” Desroches said in a statement. “Peter was instrumental during the integration process, and I am confident that he will continue to bring his expertise and leadership abilities to the Turner portfolio in this role.”

Knag was previously the vice president of AT&T merger planning, leading financial planning and analysis for the AT&T-Time Warner integration process. Prior to that role, he was managing director of corporate development for AT&T. Prior to joining AT&T, Knag worked for Lehman Brothers and First Albany Corp.
