Marc Juris was most recently executive vice president and chief operating officer of truTV. In this role, he was responsible for overseeing the network's strategic planning, original primetime programming, marketing and advertising efforts.
Juris was named to that position in December 2011, having overseen the launches of a steady stream of hit shows that successfully attracted the network's targeted young male demos. Under Juris' leadership, truTV experiencing unprecedented momentum. Propelled by original hits like Hardcore Pawn, Impractical Jokers, Lizard Lick Towing, Storage Hunters, Operation Repo, Full Throttle Saloon and South Beach Tow, as well as the acquired hit Wipeout, truTV finished 2011 with its best-ever primetime deliveries of key demos ever. This year, the network scored its biggest quarterly deliveries ever among key demos in Q1 and Q3 2012, as well as its most successful summer.
Juris joined the network in 2004, when it was known as Court TV. After being promoted to executive vice president and general manager in 2007, he led the network's January 2008 transition to truTV. Since then, truTV has experienced tremendous audience growth, while its primetime median age has dropped sharply, making 2011 truTV's youngest year ever. Under Juris' leadership, truTV also staged its first, stand-alone Upfront event in 2010.
Prior to joining the former Court TV, Juris held several positions at Rainbow Media Holdings, LLC. As president of FUSE Networks, he led the rapid growth and rebranding of the network from the former MuchMusic. Before joining FUSE, Juris was senior vice president of original programming and later general manager of AMC, where he led the network's transition from ad-free to ad-supported. Also at Rainbow Holdings, Juris served as senior vice president of regional programming for Metro Channels, where he developed, positioned, launched and managed three regional, live television networks branded MetroTV. He also held positions at King World, CBS Television Network and CBS Cable.
