Lewis climbs Fox ladder

Exec upped to corporate communications topper

NEW YORK — Brian Lewis has been promoted to the new post of exec VP of corporate communications for Fox News, the Fox-owned TV stations and TwentiethTV, topper Roger Ailes announced Tuesday.

Lewis had been senior VP of corporate communications for Fox News since 2000 and a senior adviser to Ailes. He will oversee PR for the TV and online divisions of the Fox O&Os while continuing to perform PR duties for the TV, radio and online sectors of Fox News, as well as for Fox News’ planned 24/7 business-news network.

Ailes said Lewis “has met with unparalleled success in helping to build and maintain the integrity of the Fox News brand from its infancy. I look forward to his doing the same for the Stations Group and Twentieth Television with his newly added responsibilities.”

Lewis was one of the first execs hired by Ailes, signing up in April 1996, seven months before Fox News hit the air.

Before Fox News, Lewis was VP of media relations and corporate communications for CNBC for five years.

The Fox TV Stations Group encompasses 35 stations in 26 markets, covering close to 45% of U.S. TV homes. Twentieth TV distributes original series including “Divorce Court” and “Judge Alex.”
