Rob Faris has an impressive resume: an Emmy-winner for his work on the Summer Olympics in Athens for NBC, a producer at ESPN and Madison Square Garden and, most recently, an executive producer at Voom HD, a Cablevision-owned network of high-definition stations.
Luckily Faris’ many talents will not be going to waste at his new job as senior vice president of programming and production at Outside Television, the vacation/resort network that launched 10 days ago. Outside, a collaboration between Outside magazine’s publisher Mariah Media and Resort Sports Network, will broadcast at over 100 resort destinations throughout the U.S.
Says Outside’s CEO Mark Burchill of the hire, “Rob is the strongest candidate to guide our new initiatives.” That might be something of an understatement, considering the producer’s accomplishments.
Press release after the jump.
