Two heads better than one for USA Network

Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA) continues to tweak its new NBCUniversal property. The most recent move is the appointment of Jeff Wachtel, president of original programming and Chris McCumber, head of marketing and digital strategy, to the role of co-presidents of USA Network.

The two will continue to report to Bonnie Hammer, who also oversees the less popular E! channel and SyFy.
