Tony Cochi Joins Penthouse as New Broadcast President

LOS ANGELES — Veteran industry exec Tony Cochi has joined Penthouse as its new president of worldwide broadcasting.

Cochi previously served for seven years as executive VP of broadcasting with Hustler/LFP, where he oversaw global operations and an expansion of the LFP broadcasting and internet divisions; prior to that, he launched Vivid to television as that company's EVP of worldwide distribution and new business development.

His resume also includes over 20 years experience with Cablevision and Warner Bros. prior to entering adult.

“Penthouse is an iconic brand,” Cochi said. “When we think of the most iconic names in adult, the names Penthouse, Playboy and Hustler are the ones that always come to mind.

“I’m excited about joining the Penthouse team and working closely with everyone,” he added. “I did my part expanding the Hustler brand on TV worldwide, and now I look forward to doing that with Penthouse and the other brands it represents, including expanding its distribution internationally.”

Penthouse CEO Moose welcomed Cochi to the team.

“Having worked with Tony for a decade as a colleague in the field, most notably as a partner with the Hustler brand, I’ve witnessed firsthand how amazing he is at what he does,” Moose said. “Now I’m really looking forward to joining forces and bringing that same magic to Penthouse. It is our incredible privilege to welcome Tony to the Penthouse family.”

Drew Rosenfeld, VP of Penthouse TV, noted his "tremendous respect" for Cochi.

"Tony is an industry leader with executive-level experience," he said. "Having someone like Tony on board absolutely compliments the continued growth of Penthouse. I can speak for all of us here, that we are thrilled to have Tony as part of Penthouse."

Cochi added that, in the course of working with Moose for many years as a distribution partner, he has developed "a great respect for what he does."

"I’m really looking forward to working together with Moose, Drew and the rest of the amazing team," he said.
