Kim, previously senior VP of current programmes, assumes the role held by Amy Reisenbach before she was upped to president of CBS Entertainment recently.

In his new role, Kim will oversee current primetime and daytime programming on the US broadcast network and for CBS Studios, reporting to CBS Studios president David Stapf.

Kim has been with CBS for 11 years, overseeing all phases of production on scripted titles including Blue Bloods, FBI: Most Wanted, FBI: International and CSI.

Before moving to CBS, he was VP of current programming at The CW from 2006 to 2009, before overseeing live-action series at Nickelodeon and Teen Nick from 2009 to 2011.

Reisenbach said Kim was a “smart executive whose leadership and input will be vital to the success of our series.”

Earlier in the week, around 30 people were let go across CBS Studios, CBS Paramount TV Studios and Paramount+ in the US, with the latter’s scripted originals team being folded into Paramount TV Studios.

During Content London this week, Stapf said the cuts “won’t impact the day-to-day at all or our ability to continue to make great content. We’ve reorganised to take advantage of efficiencies in the operational areas of our brand.”

He added that combining Paramount+’s scripted originals team with Paramount TV Studios would not affect the creative resources needed to make shows.
