Fox Entertainment CEO Charlie Collier is leaving to join Roku

Fox Entertainment CEO Charlie Collier is leaving to join Roku: Fox Entertainment’s CEO, a veteran TV executive, is leaving the business to join Roku as head of media. Collier will be responsible for Roku’s content business, such as The Roku Channel and its advertising department.

Collier will start working for Roku in October and will be based out of New York. Since joining Fox in 2018, he has been in charge of the company entertainment department and has created shows such as The Masked Singer and The Cleaning Lady. He ran AMC as president before joining Fox.

He joins Roku as part of a broader restructuring that also saw two other executives promoted in the streaming technology business. Gidon Katz will assume the position of President of User Experience, and Mustafa Ozgen will assume the position of President of Devices at Roku.

All three will report to Anthony Wood, Roku’s CEO. Fox is familiar with Roku because it is both a content partner (via Tubi and Fox Nation) and a former shareholder. In 2020, Fox sold its shares of Roku and used the proceeds to buy Tubi. A deal Collier helped broker.

Although Roku is best known for its streaming boxes and sticks, advertising has been the company’s primary source of growth, with its free streaming service Roku Channel serving as a critical catalyst.

The company is also in the process of significantly expanding its original content, a move that began last year when Roku acquired the library of the defunct Quibi. He’s preparing to release a spoof biopic about Weird Al Yankovic in November on The Roku Channel starring Daniel Radcliffe.

“There is a tremendous opportunity to further accelerate and grow Roku’s business as an ad-ready streaming platform, and Charlie is the perfect person to help us seize the moment.” Wood stated.

Added Collier, “Roku is a pioneer in streaming television and has achieved scale and significant relationships with our partners that will continue to be unique and valuable at this pivotal time in the industry.

As a Roku partner, I’ve seen first-hand the power and potential the platform brings to advertisers, partners, content creators and consumers. I look forward to working with the talented team at Roku to continue to innovate, grow and take the company and its partners to the next level.”

In a statement, Lachlan Murdoch, chief executive of Fox Corp., also praised Collier, saying: “We want to express our gratitude to Charlie for his leadership, contributions and unbridled enthusiasm.

He and his team executed a creative strategy in entrepreneurial and profitable ways that leveraged our broadcast leadership to build and support the business to position us for future growth. We wish Charlie all the best in his new role.”

It is not yet known who will fill Collier’s position at Fox. According to network sources, executives were informed of Collier’s resignation approximately an hour before the news broke.

Collier’s appointment follows the retirement earlier this year of Scott Rosenberg, Roku’s longtime head of platform, who played a vital role in creating The Roku Channel and expanding the business’ advertising division.
