Industry vet replaces Mark Kern, who has left the tyke cabler

TV vet Joanna Massey has shifted to the Hub as senior VP of communications and publicity.

Massey replaces head of PR Mark Kern, who asked to exit the tyke cabler in the fall and just recently left. She will be responsible for managing national, trade and local press, counseling senior leadership and implementing strategy.

In announcing Massey’s position, president-CEO Margaret Loesch said: “We are poised for even greater growth and achievement, and Joanna’s passion and commitment will help to further drive the public and trade’s awareness of our network.”

For the past several years she has helped CW prepare for its advertiser upfront.
