Janet Rollé, who has been CNN Worldwide’s chief marketing officer for the last two years, is leaving the network, TVNewser has learned. Rollé had previously worked at BET, MTV Networks and HBO.
In a note to staff, obtained by TVNewser, CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker writes, “In a busy time of new show launches and ongoing campaigns underscoring the strength of CNN and all its platforms, Janet led her team to successfully spread the word in creative, engaging ways. I want to thank her for that, and all that she has done in her tenure here.” Rick Lewchuk who is SVP of creative services will lead the department in the interim. Structural changes to CNN’s marketing department may be in store.
