CBS Chief Communications Officer Dana McClintock is exiting the company at the end of June. He’s worked in the CBS communications department for 27 years. As often happens in a merger situation, the outgoing CEO’s — Joe Ianniello, an interim one, in this case — communications lead follows him or her out the door.
The longtime executive succeeds Gil Schwartz who is retiring on Nov. 1. As EVP-chief communications officer, McClintock will have oversight of the communications group that incorporates public relations, media relations and corporate and internal communications functions for all divisions of the company.
