DENVER: Sen. Bob Dole's former spokesperson, Paul Jacobson, has landed the role of vice president of corporate communications at Denver-based Encore Media Group, where he plans to brush up the company's image.
Jacobson was most recently director of corporate communications at Ascent Entertainment. Encore Media owns 11 domestic cable networks, including Starz! and BET Movies, and is backed by Liberty Media, a division of TeleCommunications.
Jacobson will begin on November 23. 'We hope to polish brand image,' he told PRWeek. 'I am going to be building a team to raise visibility.
We hope to make people realize the vision of CEO John Sie, who is a true pioneer.'
Before joining Ascent, he was a spokesman for Comsat and a news director at the NBC radio affiliate in Manchester, New Hampshire.
