Former ESPN Exec Michael Antinoro Joins Dick Clark Productions

The new executive VP of programming will focus on developing reality and scripted projects for broadcast and online platforms

Former ESPN executive Michael Antinoro has joined Dick Clark Productions as the company's executive VP of programming.

Antinoro's focus will be developing reality and scripted projects for broadcast and online platforms. He will work between DCP's new office in New York and its Los Angeles headquarters.

He will report directly to DCP CEO Mark Shapiro.

Antinoro started working in television in 1988, as senior producer at NBA Entertainment. He joined ESPN as senior coordinating producer for "SportsCentury" in 1997.

In 1999, he founded HoopsTV.com, and returned to ESPN in 2001 as executive producer of the network's content division, ESPN Original Entertainment.

At ESPN, he coordinated and oversaw scripted and unscripted programs.

"Michael's experience in developing and producing original content will fit well with the company's expanding portfolio of projects," Shapiro said in a written statment. "His creative vision and impressive track record at ESPN – where he developed numerous projects alongside (current DCP President Orly) Adelson – make him a tremendous asset to DCP."
