NEW YORK and LOS ANGELES: CBS has restructured its communications department, naming Gil Schwartz EVP of the expanded CBS Communications Group.
The newly formed group will be responsible for all executive, internal, and external communications for CBS Television and UPN. It will also cover the affiliated stations operated by Viacom Television Stations Group, as well as Paramount Television, Infinity Broadcasting, and Viacom Outdoor.
"We have always believed in having a unified communications structure," Schwartz said.
As part of the reorganization, two senior vice presidents will report directly to Schwartz. Chris Ender will serve as SVP, based on the West Coast, and Dana McClintock will serve as SVP on the East Coast.
