Warner Bros. yesterday (Oct. 25) announced a major restructuring, which brings its home video distribution and digital content arms into one division called the Warner Home Entertainment Group. The moves are expected to consolidate all of Warner Bros.' digital businesses.

Kevin Tsujihara, the company's former head of business development, will reside over the new division, while Ron Sanders has been named the new president of Warner Home Video, which now falls under WHEG. Sanders, a former executive VP at WHV, replaces Jim Cardwell, who has served as head of WHV since late 2002. Marsha King, who, with Sanders served as executive VP under Cardwell, has left the company.

In addition to WHV, the new WHEG will run Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Warner Bros. Anti-Piracy Operations, Warner Bros. Technical Operations and the newly created Warner Bros. Digital Distribution.

WBDD, which currently does not have a president, will handle video-on-demand, pay-per-view, electronic sell-through and the Warner Bros. Online and Wireless division.
