Anthem has named Frank Tanki the new general manager of AXS TV and HDNet movies.
According to The Wrap, Tanki will oversee all business strategy and day-to-day operations, including programming, sales, operations, creative, marketing, communications, research and human resources.
“This is an incredible opportunity to help lead AXS TV and HDNet Movies forward into the future,” Tanki said. “I was fortunate enough to work with Len and many of the talented members on the AXS TV and Anthem teams over the past few months, getting a first-hand look at the amazing assets in place–not only at AXS TV and HDNet Movies, but across the broader Anthem spectrum. AXS TV is already such a great brand and I look forward to driving new areas of growth with both partners and consumers alike, as we work to build best-in-class partnerships and further establish our strong relationship with the fans.”
AXS TV is the home of IMPACT Wrestling with its weekly show IMPACT! airing every Tuesday. Anthem, IMPACT's parent company, purchased AXS TV in September 2019, giving the company a new network home.
