Fox Sports hired MARK SILVERMAN as President of National Networks, a position that has been open since July when the net fired JAMIE HOROWITZ. Silverman, who currently is president of Big Ten Network, will have a bigger role than Horowitz, in that he will oversee all programming, production, marketing and digital for Fox Sports, FS1 and FS2.

Silverman will oversee all the live events and studio shows produced by those nets. Silverman, who was hired 11 years ago as BTN’s first and only president, will also continue to oversee that channel. He will relocate from Chicago to L.A. and report to Fox Sports President & COO ERIC SHANKS. He starts Jan. 16. His direct reports include Fox Sports President of Production JOHN ENTZ, Exec VP/Programming, Live Operations & Research BILL WAGNER, Exec VP/Content CHARLIE DIXON and Exec VP/Marketing ROBERT GOTTLIEB.
