Former MTV executive Susanne Daniels is moving to the digital world to head up original programming for YouTube.

Earlier today MTV announced that Daniels, who joined the network in 2012, would be leaving her post. She joins the digital video company as vice president of YouTube Originals, heading up the company's content production.

She will report to YouTube head of content and business operations Robert Kyncl.

“Susanne is an executive whose incredible instincts have led her to consistently generate pop culture hits that audiences relate to and root for,” Kyncl said in a statement. “Susanne’s deep expertise in programming will be invaluable to us and our top creators and help them foster even more ambitious projects for YouTube.”
