Bolte's recent departure puts her amongst a growing pool of employees who have either left for other opportunities or whose contracts have not been renewed. 

Bolte, a media and music specialist, began working at mun2 in July of 2011. Previously, she held several positions at BMI, where she led relations activities and managed staffs in Los Angeles, Nashville and New York. Comment from Bolte was not immediately available on Monday after several attempts to reach her.

Roberto Isaac, mun2's former director of music programming, left in June to start his new position as managing editor at Uforia Music. He previously spent three and a half years at Telemundo Media, a division of NBCUniversal.

Diana Mogollon, executive vp and general manager at the cable network, left the company in March. In early 2013, Flavio Morales, who held the post of svp of programming and production, left mun2 for a position at Big Vida Entertainment as executive vp, where he develops and produces reality programming.  

Mun2 has traditionally targeted Latinos ages 18-34, and in recent years gained a bigger audience because of the reality program "I Love Jenni," which featured regional Mexican singer Jenni Rivera and her family. Rivera died in a plane crash while working in Mexico in late 2012. The show launched in 2011 and ended its run in the summer of 2013. The final season chronicled the aftermath of Rivera's death. 

Mun2 also has other music-related reality shows and programming such as "Larrymania," which follows the life of Mexican singer Larry Hernandez, but it is Rivera's show which resonated strongly on a national level especially with women who saw the songstress as an icon. Speculation that mun2 may take a new direction in the near future has not been ruled out. 

In June, Ruben Miendola joined NBCUniversal as president of mun2. Previously, he worked at Comcast Cable as svp and gm of Multicultural Services. Among other positions, the longtime TV executive also worked at Fox Sports Latin America as vp of programming and operations.
