New programmes structure at AMC International
January 27, 2016
A reorganisation within AMC Networks International – Central Europe will divide the Non-Sport Programming department into two distinct divisions: Film&Entertainment and Kids& Infotainment. Judit Minda is joining the AMCNI CE team as Director of Programming for the Kids& Infotainment division, while the Film&Entertainment unit will be headed by Katalin Radóczy who continues to work as Chief Programming Officer. Both directors will report to CEO Levente B. Málnay. The operation of the Sport Programming department remains unchanged.
The new Director of Progamming, Judit Minda, started her career at the Jugoslav Radio Television (JRT). She joined HBO Hungary as Manager of Programme Acquisitions, where later she became Director of Programming of SPEKTRUM TV Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia and of HBO Hungary. Between 2000 and 2008, she was the regional Vice President of Programming at HBO Central Europe. She joins AMCNI CE after leaving Modern Times Group MTG, where she was Senior Acquisitions Manager for Viasat 3 and Viasat 6 channels in Hungary.
“We are pursuing this reorganisation with the objective to increase profitability on existing markets and to enter new territories. Our goal is to further expand both these programming divisions” – explained Levente B. Málnay, CEO of AMC Networks International – Central Europe.
Nine out of AMCNI CE’s thirteen brands will belong to the two new organisational units: Film&Entertainment comprises the film channels AMC, Filmcafe, Film Mania and Film+ (in the Czech Republic and Slovakia only), while the Kids& Infotainment unit manages the brands Spektrum, Spektrum Home, TV Paprika, Minimax and Megamax.
