Fox and NBC look for new PR heads

LOS ANGELES: As the nation's television writers converge in

California for the bi-annual critics tour, both Fox Network and NBC will

be trawling for new candidates for their top entertainment PR posts.

Fox Entertainment president Gail Berman has been quietly sounding out

potential candidates about becoming head of entertainment publicity,

though she insisted she wasn't firing anyone. However, the search has

led to speculation that the position of Christina Kounelias, SVP of

publicity and corporate communications (the most senior entertainment PR

executive at Fox), is in question.

NBC also has a senior slot vacant. It is looking to replace the highly

regarded Shirley Powell, who announced her departure to Turner

Entertainment Networks last week (PRWeek, July 9).
