She will report to David Stapf, President, CBS Television Studios, and Thom Sherman, Senior Executive Vice President, Programming, CBS Entertainment.

“I’ve known Amy since my days at Warner Bros. and have watched her grow into an outstanding executive at CBS with strong writer/producer relationships that help facilitate our creative process in such positive ways,” said Stapf. “Her father, Sandy, was a terrific and unparalleled executive in the business, and she has achieved her success in similar fashion – with integrity, hard work, creativity and a spirit of collaboration. I have complete trust in Amy’s programming instincts and confidence that she will lead our Current department with distinction.”

“Having watched Amy cover The CW’s series, I have always been impressed with her programming acumen, clear point of view and her deft and fearless support of the creative process,” said Sherman. “She is a smart, respected current executive whose input and leadership will be an important component in the success of our shows.”
