Brahim will oversee corporate communications, program publicity and other PR functions for the cabler that is a joint venture of Showtime and the Smithsonian Institution. She reports to Tom Hayden, president of Smithsonian Networks and Trisha Cardoso, exec VP of corporate communications for Showtime Networks.

Brahim signs on as Smithsonian is readying the launch of new streaming options and expanding its programming slate.
