Turner Entertainment Networks has given Jeff Gregor, chief
marketing officer for TNT, TBS and TCM, the additional responsibility of general
manager of TCM. He continues to be based in Atlanta and reports to Steve
Koonin, president of TEN.
"Jeff is one of the best minds in marketing, and he is a
respected leader who has been instrumental in the recent success of TNT, TBS
and TCM," Koonin said in a statement. "This promotion is well-deserved,
and Jeff will do a terrific job in leading TCM as the network continues to
strengthen its connections with fans and its many business partners."
Gregor most recently oversaw marketing and on-air promotions
for original series like Rizzoli & Isles,
Conan and Moguls & Movie Stars: A History of Hollywood. He will continue
to oversee all marketing efforts for the three networks in his expanded role.
He joined Turner in 2000. Before that he was director of
sports asset management for The Coca-Cola Co.
