Buchanan is a 10-year veteran of The Style Network, where she was most recently Sr. VP of Programming and Acquisitions. Prior to that, she worked with VH1’s West Coast original movies and series group.

“Katie is a top strategist and fast-rising star. She joins CMT as our slate of originals grows exponentially,” said Philips. “True to character, Katie will jump in head-first, as our representative at NATPE! Then she will immediately relocate to Nashville, where she will lead the programming strategy team. We proudly welcome Katie back to the Viacom family.”
