As the head of the Program Planning, Scheduling & Acquisitions team, Danielsen will direct the long-term planning and short-term scheduling of both BET and Centric. BET is a top 20 cable network and the #1 network for the African American audience. Centric is the first network designed for Black women and recently inked an exclusive co-production deal with Queen Latifah’s Flavor Unit Entertainment.

“Pete is a strong addition to our team and we look forward to his strategic and creative expertise as we expand our programming on BET and Centric with even more new original shows, smart acquisitions and feature films in the coming year,” said Debra L. Lee, Chairman and CEO, BET Networks.

Danielsen’s career spans programming, marketing and executive ranks with leading television brands, including 13 years at Viacom. He was most recently the Executive Vice President of Worldwide Programming at Viacom Media Networks where he was responsible for 39 Nickelodeon networks in 190 countries. He played a key role in driving revenue, increasing reach, and helping Nickelodeon maintain its top ranking for 13 consecutive years.

Prior to joining Viacom, Danielsen was the Vice President of Marketing and Creative Services at CNBC, where, as part of the management team, he helped to double the network’s ratings and revenue within 18 months.
