They will focus on creating cultural moments and high impact campaigns, explore new tactics of promoting specials, and will be able to communicate different facets of their campaigns to executives, producers, talent and talent representatives.  This person will pitch media, secure opportunities and cover set visits or help plan and work junkets.
