Former News Corp exec Gary Ginsberg is joining Time Warner.
Murdoch's former communications chief, said to be his liaison to the Democratic party, left News Corp in November. His move to Time Warner, where he will advise CEO Jeff Bewkes on corporate strategy as well as marketing and corporate affairs, follows the departure last week of longtime Time Warner corporate communications head Ed Adler.
Nikki Finke reports, "Ginsberg is telling folks it's a bigger job than Ed Adler's and involves more advising and strategy stuff."
The New York Post's Peter Lauria reports that the 47-year-old Ginsberg "will advise Bewkes on a wide range of corporate issues, including oversight of marketing and corporate affairs" and that "his appointment is just the first stage of what will ultimately be a restructuring of Time Warner's senior-management ranks under Bewkes."
