CBS Sports ups LeslieAnne Wade

Executive will take charge of PR

CBS Sports has promoted 14-year veteran LeslieAnne Wade to senior VP of communications.

A VP of communications since May 1998, Wade will take charge of PR for not only CBS Sports and CBSSports.com but also the division’s wholly owned cable net devoted to college sports, CSTV, and CSTV.com. Since Showtime is a part of CBS, she’ll also work closely with Showtime Sports.

For the past nine years, Wade has engineered CBS’ publicity campaigns for its coverage of two Super Bowls, its regular-season Sunday NFL games, the PGA Tour, the U.S. Open Tennis Championship and the men’s college basketball NCAA championships, among many other sports events.

Based in New York, Wade reports to Gil Schwartz, exec VP of corporate communications for CBS, and to Sean McManus, president of CBS News and Sports.
