Showtime shuffles PR department

Net ups Kate Meyer, taps Shari Kaufman for VP gig

Showtime has made some changes in its PR department, hiring a new exec and promoting another.

Shari Kaufman has been named to a newly created position as VP of talent relations and special events. She comes to the pay cabler from boutique agency SKPR, where she repped several music and TV clients (“Entertainment Tonight,” “The Insider”), along with nonprofit orgs.

Kaufman will oversee all talent-related activities and special events for the net’s original programming.

Kate Meyer, formerly senior director of awards and film festivals, has received her VP stripes. She will work with Showtime PR topper Trisha Cardoso on all strategy for the pay cabler’s awards and film festival initiatives.
