Fuel TV's C.J. Olivares Leaving Amid Changes To Programming
Published April 26, 2011
Fox, which owns Fuel TV, plans to name a replacement for Olivares by the end of next week. Olivares will remain as a consultant at Fuel TV on a short-term basis, representing the network at Fuel TV's upfront in N.Y. May 5 and the Surf Industry Manufacturers Association Surf Summit in mid-May. He is unclear about what he plans to do after his consulting work concludes.
Olivares said, "There's tons of opportunity yet to explore and I'm weighing a number of different opportunities that would be at the intersection of television, media and action sports. It's a great space and there's lots to do still." Olivares joined Fuel TV in '02 and was named GM in '07. Before that, he was the CEO of Broadband Interactive Group.
