He will hold the same title as he did at AOL, Senior Vice President for Corporate Communications. Frankel will serve as the company’s chief spokesperson and will report directly to CEO Mark Rosenthal.
Frankel’s career also includes a stint with Rainbow Media, the cable programming subsidiary of Cablevision Systems Corporation, where he was Vice President for Corporate Communications for seven years. He also served at The Weinstein Company as Chief Communications Officer and Senior Vice President for Corporate Affairs.
Needless to say, he will be busy in his new role. Current Media Chairman Al Gore said at a recent media conference that executives are planning a new iteration of the company, “that we call Crowdsourced TV.”
