Nickelodeon UK has hired Tina McCann to fill the position vacated by Howard Litton.
McCann joins Nick UK from Turner where she is acting chief content officer for its kids channels in the EMEA region. As senior VP and managing director, she will start running Nick UK next month.
McCann replaces Howard Litton who announced his departure from Nick, after 15 years, in January. She has recently been the acting replacement for Cartoon Network Europe boss Finn Arnesen, who announced his departure from Turner late last year and has since resurfaced at Hasbro.
She will report directly to the Nick UK board. During her stint at Turner she launched Cartoon Network and TCM across Europe and was general manager of its channels in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
David Lynn, executive VP MTVN UK & Ireland, said: “Tina brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise within the children’s TV industry, as well as a clear creative and commercial vision for the Nick network.”
Nick UK has also promoted Andy Goodhand to senior VP and strategy and planning director, effective immediately.
