Paramount ups Nogawski


John Nogawski is Paramount Domestic Television's new president, upped from
his former post as president of distribution. The new post gives Nogawski, a
19-year veteran, control over marketing, promotion, research, finance and
advertiser services.

The bump up for Nogawski recognizes him as a "great leader and strategist,"
said Joel Berman, president of Paramount Worldwide Television Distribution, in a
prepared statement.

Nogawski's move up is part of the restructuring at Paramount that started
with Kerry McCluggage left as chairman last December.

Coming up for Paramount is the off-net launch of Becker and this
fall's debut of Life Moments, a new daytime cinema vérité hour that he
thinks might break the mold of, well, moldy daytime syndicated fare.
