Doug Herzog Exits Viacom Post As Head Of MTV, VH1, Comedy Central

SAN FRANCISCO/NEW YORK Longtime Viacom Inc (VIAB.O) executive Doug Herzog, who oversees the networks Comedy Central and MTV, is expected to leave the company next month, according to two sources familiar with the matter. The move comes after Herzog added more oversight, including over the MTV Networks, in a string of corporate restructurings at Viacom's faltering cable networks and after he installed new leadership at virtually all networks under his purview. He had served as head of several of the company's top cable channels, including COMEDY CENTRAL and MTV. It also follows a decision by Viacom parent National Amusements, the holding company of mogul Sumner Redstone and his family, to discontinue talks of a merger, between Viacom and CBS Corp.

Herzog began his television career in the 1980s and was one of the first programming executives at MTV.
