TORONTO – Veteran Canadian music TV exec Brad Schwartz is returning to New York City to become senior vp of programming and operations at Fuse.

He joins Madison Square Garden’s national music TV network from Canadian broadcaster CTV, where Schwartz was senior vp and general manager of MTV, MuchMusic, MuchMore and MTV2.

At Fuse, Schwartz will report to David Clark, executive vp and general manager.

“Fuse’s strategic direction has never been clearer as we look to expand our original programming, build upon our music industry relationships to connect artists and fans and emphasize our collaborations with MSG Entertainment especially through our Fuse Presents concert series,” Clark said of Schwartz’s new brief.

Schwartz also returns south after earlier serving as director of global marketing partnerships for MTV Networks International in New York City, responsible for worldwide marketing and sponsorship initiatives.
