CBS TV Distribution ups Ryan

Exec named vice president of communications

CBS Television Distribution has upped Leslie Ryan to vice president of communications.

Announcement was made Friday by CBS TV Distrib communications exec VP John Wentworth, to whom she continues to report.

Wentworth credited Ryan’s background covering TV for Electronic Media, as well as her “strong talents in strategic media placement and solid editorial relationships,” in making the promotion.

Ryan has been with the company, then known as CBS Paramount Domestic TV, since 2005. She handles communication for the syndie division, working with the press on CBS TV Distrib’s first-run and off-net fare, as well as home entertainment and consumer products.

Prior to CBS, Ryan was senior editor at Shape magazine. She also spent eight years at Electronic Media — now known as Television Week.
