Pan will report to AwesomenessTV’s new CEO Jordan Levin and its president Brett Bouttier, and work closely with Joe Davola, who is co-founder and creative consultant at the channel.

The appointment comes after AwesomenessTV co-founder Brian Robbins exited, later turning up at Paramount Pictures to lead a new youth-skewed division, Paramount Players.

AwesomenessTV is focused on premium programming targeted at young adults.

“Bonnie is the rare executive who has been an early leader in all aspects of this rapidly changing industry,” said Levin.
