New York, NY (PRWEB) May 02, 2013
ONE World Sports, delivering exclusive, live sports from around the world, today announced the appointment of two established industry professionals to its management team. Joel Feld joins the network as senior vice president of production and executive producer, while Ricardo Venegas assumes the position of chief financial officer, together expanding the breadth of the management line-up.
Throughout his career, Feld has served as a senior executive in production and programming for leading broadcast, cable and regional sports networks. Mostly recently, Feld spent six years as executive vice president of programming and executive producer for NESN, the regional sports network owned by the Boston Red Sox and Boston Bruins that ranked as the highest-rated regional sports network for the majority of his tenure. Feld’s deep production and programming experience also includes ABC Sports, where he began his career and spent 16 years during its legendary dominance in sports broadcasting, FOX Sports, Marquee/SFX Television and CSTV Networks.
Career highlights include earning eight national Emmy Awards and seven Cine Golden Awards and overseeing the production of hundreds of national and international news and sporting events, including four Olympics, three Tour de France, the FIFA World CupTM and ABC’s Wide World of Sports.
“Joel brings a world-class background in production for top sports network brands to our network,” said Alexander “Sandy” Brown, president and CEO of ONE World Sports. “Joel’s experience in building and launching networks will be invaluable as we expand our footprint in the U.S.”
Venegas has been a top finance executive in media for the past two decades, with experience that spans content, traditional media, new media and cable distribution companies in the U.S and Mexico. Most recently, he served as CFO of CloudBurstTV LLC, a private equity-backed company focused on taking broadband and IPTV technology to rural markets, and before that he was CFO of impreMedia, the leading online and print Hispanic news-and-information provider. Venegas previously was treasurer of the Journal Register Co.
Venegas began his media career in 1994 at C-TEC Corporation., a diversified media and telecommunications company where he helped reorganize the company in 1997 to spin off three publicly traded companies: RCN Corporation, Commonwealth Telephone Enterprises Inc. and Cable Michigan Inc.
“Ricardo is a respected professional who knows the media-finance space inside and out,” Brown said. “Ricardo’s range of experience will be immensely valuable as we continue to develop ONE World Sports across multiple platforms. We are delighted to have him aboard at ONE World Sports.”
The appointments take effect immediately. Both Feld and Venegas are based in ONE World Sports’ headquarters in New York City.
