Turner Broadcasting is reshaping its corporate communication ranks.

Jeff Matteson and Misty Skedgell have been promoted to replace Shirley Powell, the longtime Turner PR chief who left earlier this year and recently joined the Weather Channel as corporate communications chief.

Matteson, who will report to exec VP Kelly Regal, will serve as senior VP and strategic communications officer for Turner Broadcasting. He was previously senior veep of communications for TBS.

Skedgell, promoted from veep to senior VP of corporate communications, will direct all external and internal communications and oversee Turner’s corporate philanthropy, social responsibility and presentation services groups. She will report to Matteson.

“These promotions reflect our new thinking about the best structure for the corporate communications function at Turner,” Regal said.
