soon-to-launch streaming service

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–WarnerMedia Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt today announced the
appointment of Kevin Brockman as executive vice president of global
communications for WarnerMedia Entertainment. Brockman will report to
Greenblatt and oversee all corporate and content communications
initiatives worldwide across the company’s portfolio of networks and
brands including HBO, Cinemax, TBS, TNT and truTV as well as the
upcoming WarnerMedia direct-to-consumer streaming service.


Brockman joins WarnerMedia from The Walt Disney Company, where he most
recently served as executive vice president of global communications for
Disney | ABC Television. In that role, he was responsible for all
worldwide communications efforts on behalf of ABC Studios, ABC
Entertainment, ABC News, ABC-owned television stations, Freeform and
Disney Channels Worldwide. He also helped launch UPN (United-Paramount
Network) and began his career in television at Fox.

With more than 20 years of communications experience at the top of the
television industry, Kevin has a unique skill for overseeing multiple
brands that connect audiences of all ages to the entertainment that
resonates with them,” Greenblatt said. “He will be an important part of
the exceptional group I’m bringing together to help launch our exciting
new streaming platform anchored by the premium content of HBO, Turner
and Warner Bros.”

Brockman’s new role represents WarnerMedia’s latest step toward
positioning its roster of world-class creative talent, leading portfolio
of brands and library of intellectual property for future growth.

It’s an exciting time to join Bob and his team at WarnerMedia as the
company transforms and prepares to launch a direct-to-consumer service
later this year,” Brockman said. “My career has been built on
understanding the power of brands, and my passion for supporting
exciting and diverse voices in all forms of media — whether linear or
digital — is in sync with this vision for expanding the reach of one of
the best storytelling companies in the world.”

In addition to his celebrated 22-year tenure at The Walt Disney Company,
Brockman is known for his work on the board of 2NDStage, a non-profit
theater group dedicated to finding new American playwrights. He
previously served for two years as chairman of TPEC, the Television
Publicity Executives Committee, and recently completed an 11-year board
term with GLSEN, the nation’s leading non-profit education organization
focused on ensuring safe schools for all students, especially those
targeted because of their sexual orientation or gender
identity/expression.
