The hire follows another recent move by a CBS executive to a newly created role, that of Joseph Ianniello to COO of CBS Corporation.
In his new position, Hopkins will be responsible for achieving full value for the company’s broadcast and cable networks from distributors. He will secure new retransmission and affiliation agreements for CBS’ broadcast and cable networks, including the CBS Television Network, Showtime Networks, CBS Sports Network, Smithsonian Networks and TVGN (a joint venture between CBS Corporation and Lionsgate).
