In late 2018, Collier joined Fox after Rupert Murdoch sold his 21st Century Fox assets to Disney.
Charlie Collier, CEO of Fox Entertainment, is leaving the network to join Roku as its new President, effective in late October, based in New York.
Collier will oversee Roku’s advertising business as well as its content businesses, including The Roku Channel.
He had been with Fox since 2018, overseeing its entertainment business and developing shows like The Masked Singer and The Cleaning Lady. Before joining Fox, he was president of AMC.
During his tenure at Fox, Collier steered the company’s entertainment strategy and the rebuilding of its production infrastructure after the separation from 21st Century Fox.
Collier’s hire comes as part of a trio of moves for Roku, which also sees Mustafa Ozgen and Gidon Katz promoted to President, Devices and President, Consumer Experience, respectively.
All three report to Anthony Wood, Roku’s founder and CEO.
In a statement, Anthony Wood said: “There is a tremendous opportunity to further accelerate and evolve Roku’s business as the streaming platform built for advertising, and Charlie is the ideal person to help us capitalise on the moment. He is a proven leader who brings vast experience, a history of evolving businesses, strong creative instincts, talent relationships, and a track record of driving revenue and growth. He will play an integral role in helping us achieve even greater success as a next-generation media company.”
