“Jean Rossi, one of Fox Broadcasting’s first ad sales staffers, is leaving,” reports our good friend Jon Lafayette for B&C.
The story reports: “Rossi, now executive VP for Fox and president of parent company 21st Century Fox’s Fox One cross-company marketing group, elected not to renew her contract and will depart Aug. 31, the company says.”
Our sibling publication Advertising Age, in naming Rossi a Media Maven in 2011, wrote, “She joined Fox [just five months after the network launched] in March of 1987 after serving in senior roles at ad agencies Young & Rubicam and BBDO. She was named VP-national sales in 1990 and given added responsibility for prime-time sales and regional sales in 1993. She was named senior VP-sales in 1994, and earned responsibility for all entertainment sales in 1996 and Fox One in 2007.”
