Smith had been serving as the interim president after Rich Cronin left the position in May. Previously, Smith served as executive vice president of Fox Family Channel and general manager of Fox Kids Network. "Maureen's background in programming, marketing research and promotions make her the perfect candidate to lead both networks into distinct and top performing entertainment outlets," said chairman and CEO of Fox Family Worldwide, Haim Saban. Smith said, "My goal is working toward my vision of a true family channel that is not kid-driven 24 hours a day. Our #1 challenge is to really let people know 'family' doesn't always mean it's just for kids."
