After the shakeups at AOL Time Warner Inc. earlier this year, Brad Turell returns
to The WB Television Network in Burbank, Calif., as executive vice president of network
communications.

In a move that was not unexpected, Turell is following his boss, Jamie
Kellner, back to the network Kellner founded after resigning as chairman
of Turner Broadcasting System Inc. to return to the West Coast.

Turell had been executive VP at TBS.

"Brad is, and always will be, a part of The WB's family," Kellner said. "His
loyalty, dedication, knowledge of the industry and outstanding skill have made
him a valuable senior executive who has been a vital member of my team for more
than 15 years."

Turell's responsibilities will include public relations, but Paul McGuire
will continue to head the department as senior VP of network
communications.

McGuire reported to Turell when Turell was in charge of TBS' public relations
in Atlanta.

Turell will also be in charge of overall communications strategy and talent
relations.
