Cox Names New Head of TV and new VP of News & Marketing

Cox Media Group has named Jane Williams executive vice president of television effective immediately. CMG also named Marian Pittman vice president of news and marketing for television. Pittman will report to Williams.

She started her television career at WSB in Atlanta in 1988.  In 2007, she was promoted to VP of Sales for Cox Television and became CMG’s VP of Sales in 2009.

Williams welcomed Pittman by saying, “We are thrilled to have Marian lead our Television News and Marketing efforts.” Williams added, “She is the consummate news professional and has been an integral leader in one of the most successful, legendary local news operations in the country at Atlanta’s WSB-TV and will now work with all of our Television properties as we build for the future in a rapidly changing media environment.”

Most recently Pittman was the station manager for WSB. During her 25 year career in media, she has worked at WFTV in Orlando, WSOC in Charlotte and WHIO in Dayton, OH.
