"His commitment to quality gaming, relationships with game developers and expertise in the industry make him ideally suited to oversee our gaming efforts," he added.

Waldron joined Cartoon Network in 2000, initially as director of technology for Cartoon Network New Media. In 2003 he headed up Turner’s first internal games studio, before overseeing the Emmy award nominated Codename: Kids Next Door - Operation: B.E.S.T..
