Disney Has A New Head Of Streaming

Looks like there’s been another shakeup within the ranks at Disney.

According to Variety, Hulu president Joe Earley has been promoted to president of direct-to-consumer operations for Disney Entertainment. This, after inheriting his role at Hulu a little over a year ago.

The move will take place immediately, and it comes as the company continues to implement job cuts. He is taking over from Michael Paull.

As a part of his new role, Earley will have oversee both Disney+ and Hulu. He’ll also reported to co-chairs Alan Bergman and Dana Walden. He’ll also still lead Hulu until the company finds a suitable successor.

He’s expected to continue to work with the company’s content teams to create and promote “impactful and resonant” programming.

In a statement, Bergman and Walden called Earley “an extraordinary asset” and praised his “vast industry experience” which will be essential as they continue to map out the future of their streaming division.
