Lightcap replaces Ross at Disney

FSS_disneychannel_logoIt’s nice to see a woman taking a top spot at Disney.

“Disney has turned to its top marketing exec in Latin America to take on the tough assignment of succeeding Rich Ross as prexy of the Mouse’s Disney Channels Worldwide kidvid juggernaut.

Carolina Lightcap will relocate from Buenos Aires to Burbank to take the reins of Disney Channel’s far-flung operations, which encompass 94 channels and feeds in 169 countries and 33 languages. As part of the post-Ross shuffle an-nounced Tuesday, longtime Disney Channels Worldwide entertainment prexy Gary Marsh has taken on additional responsibilities as the company’s chief creative officer.”
