Massey most recently was SVP Corporate Communications at Lionsgate.

“I worked with Joanna for many years at both UPN and The CW and she is an excellent strategist and innovative thinker whose experience in film, television and corporate communications are a perfect fit to help grow CNÉ’s presence in the community,” said Ostroff, to whom Massey will report.
