Jamie Davis joins Versus


Jamie Davis has been named president of Comcast Corp.'s Versus network. He will join the channel in September, succeeding Gavin Harvey, who will continue to consult with the network through 2008 as Versus completes its relocation from Stamford, Conn., to Philadelphia.

Harvey said earlier this year that he would not be making the move to Philadelphia for a range of reasons.

Davis most recently was with Asian sports broadcaster ESPN Star Sports, a joint venture of News Corp. and the Walt Disney Co., where he was managing director from 2005-07.
