Mark Feldman has been named president and CEO of the multimedia game show outlet GSN.
Feldman, previously GSN’s executive vice president and general counsel, takes the place of David Goldhill, who announced his departure earlier this year.
GSN, which is co-owned by Sony Pictures Entertainment and AT&T Entertainment Group, includes GSN TV, a network distributed to nearly 80 million subscribers, and the mobile and online company GSN Games.
“GSN TV is unique in the entertainment television landscape in our persistent commitment to our core audience through game show programming in all its forms, including classic, contemporary and, increasingly, interactive shows. GSN Games has become a world leader by providing our players compelling opportunities to play anytime, anywhere, whether on their own or in a huge variety of always-available competitions,” said Feldman. “I am grateful to Sony and AT&T to be entrusted with the challenge of continuing our growth in a rapidly changing media landscape, and I look forward to working closely with them in the days ahead. I could not be more excited to team with GSN’s many outstanding professionals throughout the globe in crafting the next chapter of our development.”
Sony Pictures Television Networks president Andy Kaplan added, “Mark is a talented leader with a history of success at GSN, and I believe he has the right vision and strategy to achieve future growth in the company’s television and digital games businesses.”
Feldman was previously president of Univision Home Entertainment and Consumer Products. He graduated from Pomona College with a B.A. degree in government and holds a J.D. from the Boalt Hall School of Law at the University of California at Berkeley.
