Fox Broadcasting Company (FOX) has elevated Shana C. Waterman to Senior Vice President, Current Programming. It was announced today by Marcy Ross, the network's Executive Vice President of Current Programming.

Her program slate has included GLEE, FRINGE, FAMILY GUY, AMERICAN DAD, RAISING HOPE, HOUSE and THE MINDY PROJECT. She will continue to report to Ross.

In addition, she spearheaded the FOX Innovators Group (FIG), the network's internal think tank-style program designed to foster entrepreneurial thinking and innovation among employees.

"Shana is a top-flight programming executive and a self-starter, as evidenced by the resounding success of the FOX Innovators Program. She executed above and beyond on every level," said Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company.

Prior to joining FOX as Director of Current Programming in 2006, Ms. Waterman was a Manager of Development at Timberman/Beverly Productions. In addition to her work in television, Ms. Waterman has sustained her ongoing interest in theater.
