It’s a promotion for the very popular JOE EARLEY over at FOX. He’s no longer EVP of Marketing and Communications. He’s President or Marketing for Fox Broadcasting. Yeah, that’s a great title! The UCLA grad and his team are responsible for some of the best promo work on the tube in the last few years. Well Dunne! Joe.
Kudos on PAUL MCGUIRE’s new title – senior vp worldwide corporate communications at Warner Bros. Entertainment.
Moving to the future next level is NBC News, where they are officially combining PR, promotion and marketing into one unit. Named to head the blend is vet LAUREN KAPP. The Univ of Arizona grad has also worked at ABC News. The new unit will be called NBC News Marketing and Communication. This on the heels of NBC naming RYAN OSBORN their first Director of Social Media. PBS did a whole story on that. Well Dunne! you two.
For you PROMAX attendees – keep an eye out for BONNIE BARCLAY, who will be at the Chyron booth on the convention floor. It’s part of her new job. VERY exciting.
LA Times has an interesting story on branding and how powerful it is, in particular for cable nets. Well, no offense, but duh. Click here anyway.
Love the concept of the new talk show that’s getting some buzz. It’s four leading chefs sitting about and talking food. Yeah, I know there’s probably a lot more to it, but the basic is so tempting. Via ITV, the folks who are producing.
