Montemagno is a 23-year veteran of Cablevision and most recently served as senior VP of programming acquisition, where he served as the MSO's lead negotiator with content companies.
In his new role, Montemagno will report directly to Cablevision CEO James Dolan.
"Tom has made an enormous contribution to Cablevision over more than two decades and has clearly established himself as a leader on our executive team and a leader in the industry," Dolan said in a statement. "His ability to work with programmers to reach the increasingly complicated agreements that continue to shape and define our core video product is well established and has been an invaluable asset to Cablevision. I am pleased to welcome Tom to my senior executive team in this new and expanded role."
Budill resigned from Cablevision in October to become president of NBCU TV Networks Distribution.
