Fox Promotes Shannon Ryan to Lead Marketing and Communications

Fox Broadcasting veteran Shannon Ryan has been promoted to lead marketing and communications for Fox Television Group.

Ryan’s promotion comes on the heels of the resignation of Joe Earley as Fox Broadcasting‘s chief operating officer, who had long spearheaded the network’s marketing efforts. Ryan had been exec VP of marketing and communications for the Fox network, but now her oversight will extend across the 20th Century Fox TV studio and other entities in the Fox Television Group headed by chairman-CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman.

As part of the reorganization, Rachel Webber has been promoted to senior VP of Fox Television Group, tasked with developing new business opportunities for the Fox network and 20th Century Fox TV. Webber had been VP of new media business development at Fox TV Group. Both Ryan and Webber will report directly to Newman and Walden, and will transition into their new roles immediately.

“Now that our network and studio businesses are aligned, it’s important that our approaches to external communications, community initiatives and talent relationships are aligned as well – and Shannon is the perfect person to lead that charge,” said Newman and Walden.

“Rachel’s experience in corporate development and brand partnerships across traditional and digital media makes her uniquely suited for Fox Television Group, as we evolve our distribution and monetization strategies.”
