HOLLYWOOD — Tom Tyrer has been named senior vice president of corporate communications for both the Fox Cable Networks Group and Fox Television Studios.

Tyrer will work closely with and report to Jeff Shell, prexy-CEO of the Fox Cable Networks Group, and David Grant, prexy of Fox TV Studios.

Deep insight

“Tom has a deep understanding of not only the many diverse areas of the business, but also a firm grasp on how to apply that knowledge to Fox’s strategic advantage,” Shell said. “Now that Fox has become one of the world’s largest broadband players, it’s important to possess an executive of Tom’s insights, experience and strong relationships to help drive our entire operations forward.”

Tyrer and Grant previously worked together at Tele-TV, where Tyrer served for two years as VP of corporate communications under Grant and Sandy Grushow, now chairman of Fox Television Entertainment Group.

“I’ve worked with Tom for many years and I know that his unusually strategic understanding of the business will help us in ways that transcend the traditional notion of ‘corporate communications,’ ” Grant said.

Before jumping into the other side of the biz, Tyrer was Los Angeles bureau chief at weekly trade Electronic Media, covering network television and syndication.
