Brand integration sought

“Scott’s promotion rewards his outstanding efforts in driving CNN’s ad sales revenue throughout the Western region,” said Larry Goodman, president of CNN sales and marketing. “His new responsibilities over all of our national sales offices will help drive CNN brand integration. The addition of Stephen’s sales expertise to the CNN sales team will ensure that the positive momentum we’ve experienced in that region continues.”

Previously, Weller was VP and Western regional sales manager for CNN. He joined the news cabler as a sales planner in 1987. He also worked briefly as a sales manager for Turner Sports Sales.
