Fred Seibert, who as the first employee at MTV, later president of MTV Online and a key mover in the success of Nickelodeon, has taken over the CEO role of NexNewNetworks, a company he co-founded in 2007.

NextNewNetworks is a New York-based producer and syndicator of original entertainment programming for the Web.  Seibert replaces CEO Lance Podell who is stepping down.  More on this by Ryan Lawler at NewTeeVee.
