Cassell upped to TNT sr. VP

Exec given more publicity responsibility

NEW YORK — Karen Cassell has been upped to senior VP of public relations at Turner Network Television.

Promotion from VP will give Atlanta-based Cassell greater responsibility over publicity efforts for all of the network’s programming, including original movies, minis, series, docus and special events. She’ll continue to work closely with TBS general entertainment networks prexy Brad Siegal and TNT exec VP and general manager Steve Koonin.

“This promotion acknowledges Karen’s creativity, commitment and leadership, as well as the continuing role of the public relations group in the network’s success,” said corporate VP of public relations Julie Sprunt, to whom Cassell reports.

Cassell’s inhouse track record includes campaigns for Emmy-winning biopics “George Wallace” and “Pirates of Silicon Valley” as well as telepic adaptations of Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” Orwell’s “Animal Farm” and Cervantes’ “Don Quixote.”

Before joining TNT in 1991, Cassell was director of publicity and promotion at Avenue Entertainment.
