Martin will remain with AMC Networks in an advisory role
Kim Martin, the president and general manager of cable network WE tv, is vacating her position.
Martin is leaving the cable network, known for series such as “Braxton Family Values,” “Tamar & Vince” and “Kendra on Top,” parent company AMC Networks said Tuesday.
The executive, who has been for the network for nine years, isn't completely leaving the fold, however. Martin will remain on as an adviser for AMC Networks, reporting to CEO Josh Sapan.
AMC networks declined to comment on a successor for Martin.
AMC Networks COO Ed Carroll lauded Martin's “impressive track record” at WE in announcing her departure, citing WE's success particularly on Thursday and Friday nights.
“Kim is an extremely talented executive with an impressive track record at WE tv,” Carroll said in a statement. “Under her leadership, the network's distribution has grown, viewership is up and WE tv is a top 3 women's network on Thursday and Friday nights.”
