ABC News Media Relations Director Leaving To Start Consultancy


First on PRNewser: ABC News Director of Media Relations Paige Capossela Green is leaving the company to start, “a new venture as a communications/pr consultant.”

Capossela Green’s email to friends and colleagues after the jump.

Subject: Beginning a new chapter…

I wanted to let you all know that I have made the very difficult decision to leave my position at ABC News.

Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity and pleasure to work closely with many of you in my role promoting ABC news magazine series, Diane Sawyer specials, and documentary programming. I have deeply enjoyed that work and have decided to build upon my experience, embarking on a new venture as a communications/pr consultant. I plan to continue work in the tv/media industry and welcome new opportunities as well. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you know of any projects I can help with.

I look forward to our paths crossing again in the near future!
