Penelope Levey has been named senior VP of media and talent relations at UPN.

Reporting to Lucie Salhany, president and CEO of UPN, Levey will oversee all corporate press and public relations as well as talent relations for the network. She replaces Kevin Brockman, who is now VP of media relations at ABC.
