LOU FAZIO NAMED SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT, SCHEDULING, ACQUISITIONS AND PLANNING FOR THE HUB NETWORK
LOS ANGELES – Lou Fazio was named Senior Vice President, Scheduling, Acquisitions and Planning for the Hub Network, a destination for kids and their families, it was announced today by Hub Network President & CEO Margaret Loesch, to whom he reports.
In his job as the head of program scheduling, acquisitions, and planning since January 2010, Fazio has played an important role at the Hub Network in identifying, evaluating, and licensing on-brand content for the network, including series, movies, and specials. Additionally, Fazio and his team handle on-air promotion scheduling and planning, as well as the network’s program editing and post-production. Earlier this year, Loesch reorganized the programming department, separating program development and production from program scheduling and acquisitions, thereby having Fazio report directly to Loesch.

Prior to joining the Hub Network, Fazio served as Vice President of Program Strategy and Acquisitions at Game Show Network (GSN), where he managed scheduling and long-range planning for GSN’s programming development and acquisitions needs. Previously, Fazio was responsible for scheduling and planning for Toon Disney (now Disney XD) and ABC Kids, the Saturday morning children’s programming block on ABC Television. Prior to his tenure at Disney, Fazio was responsible for scheduling and acquisitions for USA Network and The Sci-Fi Channel (SyFy).
