EXCLUSIVE: Joe LaBracio, co-head of UTA’s alternative TV department, is leaving the agency for a top executive job at Condé Nast Entertainment. LaBracio has been named EVP, alternative programming and will oversee the development and production of unscripted programming for the company, reporting to Condé Nast Entertainment president Dawn Ostroff. LaBracio, who starts on Jan. 13, succeeds Michael Klein, who recently moved to a new role as head of creative for the company’s digital channels. “Joe has worked with the team at UTA to build an impressive alternative television department,” said Ostroff. “I am delighted that he will be bringing his keen sense of resonant programming and extensive experience in unscripted television development and production to CNÉ.” This marks LaBracio’s return to the executive ranks after holding a position at CBS where he oversaw series production on The Amazing Race, Big Brother and Rock Star, among others, before segueing to agenting. For the past 15 months, since the departure of Michael Camacho in October 2012, LaBracio co-headed UTA alternative department with partner Brett Hansen who will now run it solo, reporting to managing director Jay Sures. Before his stint at UTA, where he helped package more than a 100 series, LaBracio was an agent at CAA. He started his TV career on ABC News’ Nightline as Ted Koppel’s assistant.
