He will work closely with counterpart Abhishek Dutta in South Asia, who along with Ho reports to Leslie Lee, head of kids for WarnerMedia APAC, and Shinji Suetsugu, executive director of programming for WarnerMedia in Japan.

Ho will also work with the HBO Go team, overseeing the growing kids’ and family section on WarnerMedia’s regional streaming service for South-East Asia.

Ho was previously a member of the programming team at HBO in Asia in the early 2000s. He then joined Disney, where he worked on projects spanning programming, multiplatform operations, acquisitions, creative services and original productions for its kids’ portfolio, as well as Fox’s general entertainment channels.
