CBS has promoted Bridget Wiley to the position of executive vice president of current programs, the network announced Thursday.

She will oversee the combined department that supports current programming for both CBS Entertainment and CBS Television Studios. Wiley will report to both Glenn Geller, president of CBS Entertainment, and David Stapf, president of CBS Television Studios.

In her new role, Wiley will oversee creative affairs for all scripted series broadcast on CBS, and for studio shows produced for other networks and streaming services. Wiley succeeds Geller, who was recently named president of CBS Entertainment, as head of the department. She had previously served as senior vice president in the department since 2013.

In addition, Amy Reisenbach has been promoted to senior vice president of current programs. In her new capacity, she will supervise all series produced by the studio for The CW, while continuing to work on several shows broadcast on CBS. She will report to Stapf for series on The CW, and to Wiley for those on the network.

“We’ve worked closely with Bridget and Amy for 10 years, and have watched them earn the respect and trust of creative talent and executives alike,”Geller and Stapf said in a joint statement. “They are smart, skilled, creative executives who provide insight and value to every show they work on.”

Wiley joined CBS in 2005 as vice president of current programming. Previously, she was the director of current programming at Twentieth Century Fox Television from 2002-2005 and held positions in the Twentieth Century Fox drama department prior to that. She is a graduate of Fordham University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts.

Reisenbach joined CBS Television Studios in 2005 as the manager of current programs. She was promoted to director a year later, and named vice president in 2011. Previously, she worked at Warner Bros. Television in their drama development and current departments. She is a graduate of the University of Arizona with a Bachelor of Arts in Social and Behavioral Sciences.
