20th Century Fox TV has promoted communications execs Shari Rosenblum and Chris Kaspers to Senior Vice President, and Vice President, Publicity, respectively.
“Shari is a talented publicity executive who has run point on the campaigns of some of the studio’s most memorable shows, from Homeland to Modern Family,” said Chris Alexander, Executive Vice President of Corporate Communications and Publicity. “She’s valued by showrunners, talent and press alike, and I’m happy she’ll be taking on more, particularly in the awards space, as part of this increased role. Chris has become an integral member of the team, from running the studio’s San Diego Comic-Con effort to handling our high profile series This is Us. It’s no accident he won the Weinberg award for his work on that show; he’s a spectacular publicist who never lets you see him sweat.”
