LOS ANGELES: Disney/ABC Television Group has promoted two of its senior PR executives to roles overseeing communications for multiple channels.
Sue Binford is now SVP of corporate communications, and Kevin Brockman is SVP of entertainment communications.
Both had focused exclusively on ABC. Each will now oversee communications for other channels, including SoapNet, ABC Family, and the Disney Channel.
Binford will continue to handle PR for ABC Sports and ABC News, while Brockman will still head ABC prime-time publicity, as well as oversee talent relations and photography.
The move marks the first major restructuring push by group president Anne Sweeney, who took on her role earlier this year.
Binford and Brockman will report to Sweeney and Zenia Mucha, SVP of communications for Disney.
