Broadcast's longest-serving entertainment chief is heading for the exit.
Nina Tassler, CBS Entertainment chairman, will depart at the end of the year, CBS announced today. She will be succeeded by Glenn Geller, who previously worked under Tassler as evp, current programming, for CBS Network Television Entertainment Group. He has been named CBS Entertainment president effective immediately.
Tassler has run CBS Entertainment since 2004 and has been with the network since 1997. CBS said she will continue on as an advisor until at least 2017.
"Nina is a creative executive with the instincts of an artist, so it came as no surprise that she would eventually want to express those talents beyond television," said Les Moonves, CBS Corp.
