Turner Broadcasting has recently announced that they have promoted Courtenay Palaski to vice president of public relations for the company’s animation, young adults & kids media group. Palaski will report directly to James Anderson, SVP, public relations in Los Angeles, and will be in charge of public relations efforts for all Cartoon Network, Adult Swim and Boomerang programming.
Courtenay Palaski served previously as Cartoon Network’s senior director of public relations, where she played a key role in generating media coverage for such projects as the creation of Cartoon Network Studios, the launch of the Adult Swim late-night network. A few award-winning animation shows broadcast on Cartoon Network were campaigned by Palaski and her team as well, including Dexter’s Laboratory, The Powerpuff Girls, Samurai Jack, Ben 10 and more. Palaski also helped creating PR launch campaigns for Adult Swim original properties, including Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Tom Goes to the Mayor, The Venture Bros. and Metalocalypse.
“Courtenay is one of most well-respected PR professionals in the business,” said James Anderson in an official press communique. “Her relationships with the media, as well as strategic and creative insights have been an asset to not only our PR campaigns but to the overall brands of each of our networks and studios.”
Before starting with Cartoon Network in 1998, Palaski worked in development at TNT and then in publicity for Turner Pictures. Prior to Turner Broadcasting, Palaski worked at the Samuel Goldwyn Company and The New Yorker.
