David Goldhill is stepping down as CEO of our little game show network GSN.
Goldhill was only the third chief exec in GSN's more than twenty-year history. As the linked story notes, he oversaw GSN's most prosperous times, leading to the network's most watched and highest rated year in 2015. The following year was almost as good, so it doesn't look like Goldhill is getting pushed out.
After Michael Fleming was shown the door in 2001, Rich Cronin took over GSN and managed to steer the once dicey network to profitability. Goldhill started his reign in 2007, and the sailing was not too smooth at first. GSN finally started churning out better numbers on both the ratings charts and the financial books, and Goldhill seemed safe in his job.
But nothing lasts forever (clunking cliche alert) and Goldhill has decided to move on. Co-owners Sony and AT&T will start looking for a new chief exec to run both the TV and gaming operations.
