DISH Ups A Six-Year Veteran To SVP/Programming


Andy LeCuyer, who joined DISH Network in 2011 as Director of Programming and later rose to VP/Programming, has added SVP stripes at the DBS and OTT provider.

As SVP/Programming, LeCuyer will oversee the acquisition and renewal of programming content for DISH and Sling TV. He leads the team securing satellite and digital rights (traditional linear, Video On Demand, TV Everywhere and OTT) for general entertainment, local broadcast, sports, Latino and movie studio content.

LeCuyer also oversees programming operations and will continue to report to DISH EVP/Marketing, Programming and Media Sales Warren Schlichting.
