The “media professionals crossing over into PR” trend doesn’t always hold true: today we learned that industry veteran Fay Sliger has joined Vox Media as its communications director.
Prior to joining Vox, Sliger served as VP at New York firm High10 Media, which represents various publishing brands like The Hollywood Reporter and Billboard (both of which were coincidentally acquired by Mediabistro’s new parent company, Prometheus Global Media).
Sliger isn’t new to media by any means, though: High10 hired her straight from VICE, where she handled media relations and corporate comms and directed promo for several campaigns that VICE’s in-house creative team developed for clients. Before landing that gig, Sliger was a senior account director at Sunshine Sachs.
