I am excited to welcome him to NBC."

In this position, he was ABC Entertainment's senior executive in charge of primetime and late-night program planning and scheduling. Beyond these network-specific duties, he was responsible for windowing strategies for ABC Entertainment Group programs across all platforms, both domestic and international.

Bader joined ABC in 1988 as Supervisor, Audience Analysis. He became Manager, Audience and Program Research, in 1989; Manager, Program Planning and Scheduling, in 1991; Director in 1992; Executive Director in 1994; Vice President, Current Series Programming, in 1995; Vice President, Program Planning and Scheduling, in 1996; Senior Vice President, Program Planning and Scheduling, in 1998 and Executive Vice President ABC Entertainment in 2000.
