RTL executives Ladya van Eeden and Marko Langer will replace Joerg Schuette as programming chief at RTL sister channel Vox. Van Eeden will be responsible for the fiction division and Schuette will supervise news.

Van Eeden, who is currently programming co-ordinator at RTL, will make the transition on August 1 and Langer, producer of the news show Stern TV, will join a month later.

The appointments come on the heels of RTL's acquisition of a 49% stake in Vox from RTL parent company, Luxembourg-based CLT-Ufa (Screendaily, February 28).
