ESPN has promoted Jamie Horowitz to VP Original Programming and Production. Horowitz will be responsible for all original programming on ESPN. The move follows ESPN President John Skipper’s recent structural announcement. Horowitz will focus on identifying and coordinating new programming needs. It will involve creation of new shows, production of segments within existing shows and oversight of potential new projects. Horowitz will continue to oversee programming in which he has been creatively involved including ESPN2’s First Take, SportsNation and Numbers Never Lie as well as ESPN Sports Saturday on ABC. He will also continue to supervise ESPN’s World Series of Poker programming. Horowitz is based in Bristol and will report directly to Williamson on all original programming while continuing to report to Marcia Keegan, VP Production, on all existing projects. Horowitz joined ESPN in 2006 as a senior producer on ESPN Original Entertainment. Before joining ESPN, Horowitz worked at NBC Sports, where he created, developed and produced The National Heads-Up Poker Championship.
