Diana Mogollon, executive VP/GM at mun2, has left the company, according to an official with the network.
 
Mogollon's departure from the bilingual cable network (owned by NBCUniversal) comes after holding the position since July 2010. Previously, the executive was VP of programming and marketing at Telemundo for 5 years.
 
According to a mun2 spokesperson, Mogollon decided to leave the network to pursue other interests. The statement continues:
 
"We thank her for her commitment and dedication to mun2 and Telemundo and wish her the best in the next chapter of her career. Until we name a new leader for the network, Jackie Hernandez, COO of Telemundo Media, will oversee the operation."
 
During her time with the network, Mogollon was part of a team that helped transition the cable network into a stronger industry player. Last year other networks such as Fusion, Nuvo TV and Mundo Fox entered the market which is increasingly targeting Latin millennials.

In 2013, the network had the highest-rated series in its history with the reality show "I Love Jenni," which had its third and final season last year. The show was a vehicle for Jenni Rivera, who died in December of 2013 after her small plane crashed in Mexico. Going into the final season was bittersweet, but the Rivera family insisted on completing the show in honor of the matriarch.
 
“There was a little trepidation going into the [final] season but it ended up breaking records,” Mogollon said last year as part of an interview for Billboard's Women in Music issue.
 
In 2014 the network has continued with other offerings, including the third season of the successful reality show “Larrymania” (featuring Larry Hernandez). Mogollon, in previous interviews, said the network was also looking to expand sports coverage in addition to bringing back scripted programming: “Our roots are still in music,” she said. “Everything we do around music and lifestyle is crucially important.”
 
Mogollon's departure comes nearly one year after Flavio Morales, SVP of programming and production, left to take a position of executive vice president at Big Vida Entertainment, which creates reality programming, scripted shows and live events, among other offerings.
 
Employees at mun2 were told about Mogollon's departure late last week and advised that Hernandez is stepping in until a replacement is named.
