Behrends upped at NBC Uni Germany

Will be sole managing director of pay TV group

MUNICH -- Katharina Behrends, who until now was co-managing director of pay TV group NBC Universal Global Networks Germany alongside Roger Schneider, will take over as sole managing director effective immediately, the Munich-based company said Tuesday.

Schneider is leaving, reportedly to become deputy managing director of the former NBC Universal movie channel "Das Vierte," which was sold off in June.

Behrends will add his duties in advertising sales, programming, on-air promotion and finance to her portfolio.
