Amy Doyle Named Executive VP of VH1 and Logo (Exclusive)
Amy Doyle is moving up.
The former MTV music chief has been appointed executive vp VH1 and Logo, deputy to general manager Chris McCarthy. In the newly created role, Doyle will assist McCarthy with the oversight of management and creative of both Viacom brands. She'll also be directly responsible for live programming, tent-pole events and specials, network talent development and celebrity relations, as well as VH1's Save The Music Foundation.
“Amy is a multi-talented executive with a proven ability to build brands and talent and create pop culture moments that drive audiences across every platform,” said McCarthy. “She’s a forward-thinking leader for this new era in media, and I couldn’t ask for a better partner while we continue to build VH1 and Logo as the premier pop culture brands.”
Doyle most recently served as executive vp music and talent for MTV and VH1, where she led music content and programming, talent booking, artist relations and music supervision. As executive producer of the MTV Video Music Awards, Doyle was instrumental in Beyoncé’s first performance of her self-titled album in its entirety, not to mention bringing together feuding pop stars Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift for a splashy opening to this year’s VMA’s. She also championed Amy Schumer as host of this year’s MTV Movie Awards on the brink of her worldwide comedy takeover.
