Schwartz exits Audible after a month

Brad Schwartz, the former president of ViacomCBS-owned pay TV channel Pop TV, has exited Audible around one month after joining the audio entertainment platform.

Schwartz, who was named chief content officer at the Amazon-owned company last month, left after Audible employees discovered an old sexual harassment lawsuit filed against Pop Media Group, according to Bloomberg.

Schwartz was not named a defendant in the case, but his connection to the lawsuit, which has since been dismissed, has reportedly led Audible to reconsider his appointment.

Schwartz joined Pop TV in 2013 when it was a joint venture between CBS and Lionsgate Television known as the TV Guide Network. He led the channel’s rebrand and its push into original programming, with shows like sitcom Schitt’s Creek.

Prior to working at Pop TV, he held executive positions at MSG Media and Canada’s Bell Media, before which he held roles at channels including MTV Canada.
