EXCLUSIVE: Conde Nast Entertainment‘s EVP of alternative programming Michael Klein is transitioning to a new role at the company. He has been named EVP, program and content strategy, digital channels, overseeing program development, production and content strategy for the Conde Nast-branded digital channels. Klein, who reports to CNE president Dawn Ostroff, replaces Robert Green, who will be leaving CNE after a seven-month stint. There are currently six CN digital channels, with the number expected to go up by 2-3 by the end of the year and another 7 next year until all 20 brands in the CN publishing portfolio has its own digital extension. Klein, who has been at CNE since April 2012, has shepherded the company’s reality television development, setting up such projects as Vanity Fair Confidential on Investigation Discovery and The Fashion Fund on the Ovation Network. He will now use his unscripted background (Klein was previously SVP of programming and development at the Sundance Channel), to guide CNE’s expansion from short to longer-form original digital programming. Search is underway for a replacement.
