Titan taps Block as VP media

Titan Sports, parent company of the World Wrestling Federation, has hired 24 -year NBC veteran Curt Block for the new post of VP of media relations and corporate communications.

Event programming

Block, who worked with Titan when it produced the “Saturday Night’s Main Event” wrestling matches for NBC in the mid-’80s, says Titan plans a major push to produce event programming for the international marketplace.

Titan’s most visible productions are its Wrestlemania pay-per-view specials, which consistently chalk up higher buy rates than any other events except championship prize fights.

Joining NBC in 1969 as a sports publicist, Block rose through the ranks to director of business and trade publicity in the mid-’70s. He became VP of media relations in 1981. His duties included running the network’s press operations at the Summer Olympic Games in 1988 and 1992 and organizing press campaigns for programs produced by NBC News.

Block will work out of the company’s headquarters in Stamford, Conn., reporting to Linda McMahon, president of Titan.
