Twentieth Promotes Research Exec


Joanne Burns, senior vice president of sales marketing, research and new media for Twentieth Television, has been named executive VP.

Burns will head up all first-run and off-net research for Twentieth TV shows, which on the first-run side include the just-relaunched A Current Affair, Ambush Makeover, and Divorce Court, as well as off-nets Malcolm in the Middle, The Simpsons and Cops.

Burns has been with Twentieth since 2000. Before that, she worked with Twentieth President/COO Bob Cook at CBS' Eyemark Entertainment before it morphed into King World.
