Hello everyone. Today I am officially announcing our new Head of Communications, Dominic Pagone. This will come as no surprise to many of you, especially since he was in the office last week!
Dom is certainly no stranger to our team. In his previous position at Showtime Communications, he was a key PR consultant and strategist for a number of PTVS business and programming issues. Now we have him full time!
He is not new to me either. Dom and I previously worked together at FX, where I witnessed first-hand his incredible skills in media relations, talent relations, events and awards strategy. He loves television and knows how to earn meaningful recognition for our premium programming. Dom is also the ultimate collaborator for executives, talent, producers and everyone in the creative process.
As Senior Vice President of Communications at PTVS, Dominic will report to myself and Chris Ender, who oversees communications for all CBS brands and other segments of The World of George Cheeks. Dom and his team will be based on the ground floor of the Lubitsch building, where they will also align and collaborate with Chris’ wider communications team.
In addition to Dom’s announcement, I’m sure you also saw the amazing news last week about Erin Calhoun, who was named Paramount’s EVP of Streaming and Cross-Company Communications to oversee Paramount+, Pluto and Paramount+ Spread with SHOWTIME and take on a new cross-platform role in the wider company. I would like to thank Erin for her excellent communications leadership at PTVS and for her support of me and all of our teams.
We now have three of the best communications in the world. We had Dom every day; Erin when we sold the show to Paramount+; we also connected to Chris’s wider distribution group.
Please join me in thanking Erin and welcoming Dom to his new PTVS leadership role.
