New York, NY (PRWEB) July 09, 2014
ONE World Sports, America’s Network for Global Sports, today announced the promotion of two members of its senior management team.
Joel Feld has been appointed Executive Vice President, Programming and Production, after working with the organization since early 2013. Beth Sanford has been promoted to Senior Vice President, Marketing, from Vice President, Marketing.
The promotions, effective immediately, were announced by Alexander “Sandy” Brown, President and CEO of ONE World Sports.
“Joel has taken on everything I have thrown at him and executed at a level of excellence that is exceptional,” Brown said. “From helping develop our Stamford broadcast facility, to creating a first-class New York Cosmos broadcast team, to helping secure multiple global sports rights and renewals, there are not many touch points in this company where Joel has not been involved.”
Feld joined ONE World Sports after a thirty-five year career in the sports media industry. He served as Executive Vice President, Programming and Executive Producer for New England Sports Network (NESN). Prior to NESN, he was Executive Vice President and Executive Producer for College Sports Television Networks (CSTV). Before CSTV, he was President of SFX Clear Channel Entertainment Television. Feld began his sports broadcasting career at ABC Sports where he worked for 16 years. He is a thirteen-time Emmy Award winner. He holds a B.A. in history and political science from the State University of New York at Albany and is a member of the Directors Guild of America and the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
“Beth has spearheaded the development of our brand -- from positioning to creative to execution, on-air, off-air, online and on-ground,” Brown added. “She has overseen all of our research efforts, our affiliate and trade marketing, and has helped build our social media efforts from scratch. She lives and breathes ONE World Sports, which is enormously valuable for a network of our size.”
Sanford joined ONE World Sports as Vice President of Marketing in January 2013. Previously, she served as a partner in Hyphen3, a strategic-marketing consultancy firm which she co-founded in 2006 and which focuses on expanding audiences for entertainment and Internet businesses. Prior to Hyphen3, she was Vice President of Marketing at Rainbow Media (now AMC Networks), where she helped launched Mag Rack, the first VOD-only television network. Previous positions included serving as: Vice president of Consumer Marketing for Lifetime Television; Director of New Business Development for Time Warner Direct Entertainment; Consumer Marketing Director of Life magazine; Television Manager for Time magazine; and Director of Market Planning at HBO. She earned an M.B.A. from Columbia University and a B.A. in History from Princeton University.
