NEW YORK, NY, June 3, 2014 – AMC Networks (Nasdaq: AMCX) today announced that Marci Wiseman, the current head of business affairs for AMC, is moving into a new role at AMC Networks, as the executive-in-charge of Owned Content Distribution and Strategy. She will report to AMC Networks’ Chief Operating Officer Ed Carroll and will be responsible for expanding the reach of the company’s owned content across its four networks, through non-affiliate distribution agreements, including domestic subscription video on demand and global syndication.
