ABC Entertainment on Friday unveiled what it’s calling a restructuring of its publicity and communications teams, with veteran communications executive Naomi Bulochnikov-Paul elevated to senior vice president of communications for ABC Entertainment. Bulochnikov-Paul has been VP of communications at Freeform.
Shannon Ryan, president of marketing for ABC Entertainment and Disney Television Studios, announced the moves. Bulochnikov-Paul, who will report to Ryan, will be responsible for all strategic corporate communications efforts, consumer press campaigns and awards outreach for the network.
As part of the restructuring, Janet Daily, who has been vice president of publicity, will move to Disney Television Studios, where she will focus on the ABC Studios label, reporting to Chris Alexander, executive vice president, Corporate Communications and Publicity, Disney Television Studios.
“Working with Tom Ascheim, Naomi was critical in helping put Freeform on the map,” said Ryan. “She is an incredible leader, a gifted strategist and truly one of the brightest and most innovative communications executives in the business. Naomi already has a great shorthand with Karey Burke, which will allow her to hit the ground running, and we’re thrilled to have her lead our talented publicity and communications team at ABC into the future.”
