Longtime Peacock PR maven Rebecca Marks has extended her deal to remain exec veep of NBC Entertainment publicity.
There had been a question about Marks’ role amid the broad NBC exec revamp implemented by NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt, who last year recruited Richard Licata as exec veep of communications for NBC Entertainment. Greenblatt and Licata have a long history of working together at Fox and most recently Showtime.
But on Thursday, NBC confirmed that Marks will continue to oversee all day-to-day publicity efforts for the network’s primetime, latenight and daytime programming, as well as the net’s photo and talent relations departments.
“Very simply, the prospect of assembling a first-rate PR team who will shepherd NBC’s media profile and brand successfully into the future didn’t seem complete without the extraordinary expertise and energy of Rebecca,” Licata said in announcing the pact.
Marks has been with NBC since 1991 and was most recently upped to exec veep rank in 2004.
