STAMFORD, Conn., Nov. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- ONE World Sports, America's Network for Global Sports, announced today that John Vilade has joined the network as Executive Vice President, Advertising Sales.

With over 20 years of successful media advertising sales, distribution sales and business development experience, Vilade brings to ONE World Sports a proven track record, terrific media pedigree and a vast clientele of senior-level relationships. He joins ONE World Sports from CBS, where Vilade served as Vice President, National Digital Ad Sales for CBS Local Digital Media.  Vilade will be working from ONE World Sports' New York office.

"John brings both the linear and on-demand, digital premium video sales experience essential to a millennials-focused network like ours," said Alexander "Sandy" Brown, ONE World Sports President & CEO. "Younger sports fans are increasingly multicultural and increasingly platform-agnostic. At the same time, sports remain the best way to attract viewers of all ages to watch 'TV' live or to consume content on any device. John is the type of executive who knows how to capitalize on that opportunity for clients."

Before CBS, Vilade was Executive Vice President, National Ad Sales, for Inform, formerly NDN, a provider of personalized content delivery and performance-based monetization to mobile and desktop advertisers and publishers.  Prior to Inform, Vilade was Vice President, National Advertising Sales, East & Central Regions, for Hulu, and, before that, he served as Vice President, National Advertising Sales for Discovery Communications.  He served for more than 10 years collectively within various units within NBC, most recently as Vice President, National Ad Sales for NBC's Strategic Partnership Group. Vilade holds both a bachelor's and master's degree in communication studies from Baylor University.

"I'm thrilled to join the ONE World Sports team and its differentiated, well-positioned sports content portfolio," added Vilade.  "Advertiser demand to reach U.S. audiences through premium video content across all platforms continues to rapidly accelerate, particularly through the sports genre. ONE World Sports presents a fresh, compelling, growing multi-platform video for marketers."
