Tina McCann to step down from Nickelodeon UK

Alison Bakunowich will become general manager of children’s TV network from March.

A management handover is coming at Nickelodeon UK – with Tina McCann stepping down from her role as managing director at the children’s TV network in the New Year.

Tina (pictured) has spent six years in the role, and under her leadership Nickelodeon’s UK network is enjoying its fifth consecutive year of share of viewing growth.

Alison Bakunowich will become the new general manager in March 2016, taking over management responsibility for Nickelodeon UK’s seven-strong network of TV channels and multiplatform properties.

Tina will step down at the same time to resume work as a freelance executive coach and media consultant.

The handover coincides with a period of healthy ratings for Nickelodeon’s network of UK channels. Nick Jr has recently recorded its highest ever daily and weekly share of viewing among children aged four to 15.

This strong performance has helped the Nickelodeon UK network claim the number one spot in the children’s TV ratings throughout October and November.

Tina commented: “I’ve had a slime-tastic six years at Nick and am delighted to hand over the best job in kids TV to such a talented, passionate Nick fan as Alison. Orange blood courses through her veins.”

Alison has been vp editorial for Nickelodeon UK since September, having previously served as vp creative, marketing and communications since April 2011.
