EVP & Deputy GM, VH1 & Logo
Doyle continues to build brands and talent relations at VH1 and Logo while creating pop culture moments that drive audiences to the sister networks’ multiple platforms. She served as executive producer for some of VH1’s latest tent-pole successes, including “Hip Hop Honors: All Hail the Queens,” the network’s highest rated event since 2011; “VH1’s Big In 2015 with Entertainment Weekly,” its second-highest rated tent-pole since 2011; and Mother’s Day celebration show “Dear Mama.” Looking back over the past year, Doyle has plenty of reason to celebrate herself. “VH1 leads the top 25 as the fastest-growing entertainment network! We couldn’t be more proud,” she says.
Which sector of the cable industry best demonstrates gender equality? Which could use some enlightenment?
The marketing and sales sectors of the cable industry demonstrate gender equality. I’d like to see more enlightenment on the creative development side.
What advice would you give your 13-year-old self?
Always trust your instincts and have confidence in your point of view. Stay curious, embrace change and never compromise your moral compass.
Which current programming best reflects the kind of women’s roles you like to see and why?
I like to see intelligent, complicated and layered roles for women. Roles where women are both amazing and flawed, and unapologetically truthful. Many of Shonda Rhimes’ characters are an example of this.
What’s been the biggest story in cable this year?
For us, it’s that VH1 leads the top 25 as the fastest-growing entertainment network! We couldn’t be more proud.
