The five-year veteran of Fox will now oversee all programming, scheduling, marketing, research, digital and business affairs for the network, which has been the top-rated broadcaster among adults 18-49 for eight consecutive seasons.
"Kevin is a uniquely gifted executive with the strong strategic vision and creative instincts to ensure that Fox continues to drive the future of our industry," said Peter Rice, chairman and CEO of Fox Networks Group. "We are incredibly fortunate to have him here and thrilled he will be with us for many more years."
Reilly's promotion comes as News Corp. has been restructuring its senior leadership team, upping Rice to chairman-CEO of Fox Networks Group in late July to oversee Fox Broadcasting Company, Fox Sports Media Group, FX, Fox International Channels and the National Geographic Channels. Last week, David Haslingden, president and COO of Fox Networks Group, announced his plans to step down at the end of the year.
Reilly joined Fox from NBC in 2007.
