CW Taps CBS’ Chris Brooks To Head Affiliate Relations

CBS syndie sales vet fills vacancy left by Elizabeth Tumulty's move from CW to Eye

CW and CBS have completed their swap of affiliate relations execs with the appointment of Chris Brooks as CW’s senior VP of network distribution.

Brooks will oversee all affiliate relations, distribution and marketing matters for the CW. He fills the post left vacant since last June, when Elizabeth Tumulty moved from CW to CBS as exec VP of affiliate relations. She was upped to prexy rank in December.

Brooks reports to CW exec VP John Maatta.

“We place an incredible value on our relationship with the group owners and the local stations, and with his wealth of experience from CBS and proven skill in managing at the national and local level, Chris is the ideal candidate to head up The CW’s network distribution team,” Maatta said.

Brooks previously worked for CBS Domestic TV and its predecessor, Paramount Domestic TV. He joined the company in 1997 and had been senior VP of West Coast distribution since 2004.
