Jamie Gillespie Tapped for VP Post at 21st Century Fox’s D.C. Office

Jamie Gillespie has been named vice president of government relations in 21st Century Fox’s Washington office.

Gillespie previously worked at the National Association of Broadcasters on issues like retransmission consent, satellite carriage, and copyright protection.
