Longtime CBS PR executive Chris Ender has been named to the top communications post within CBS Entertainment Group. Ender fills the role left by Dana McClintock, who formally left CBS this week. McClintock announced his departure back in March, which coincided with the beginning of George Cheeks’ tenure leading CBS.
ViacomCBS plans to institute another round of layoffs that will affect the CBS Entertainment Group. The new round of layoffs come a month after an earlier round of cuts (about 100 people), that included Sarah Babineau, head of content and creative enterprises at Comedy Central, and Smithsonian Networks President Tom Hayden.
