The company behind Emmy-winning PBS KIDS series, including Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Odd Squad, and Peg + Cat, revealed promotions for a pair of seasoned executives and a new hire as it looks ahead to future portfolio growth.
Fred Rogers Productions promoted Suzanne Masri to vice president of marketing, communications, and engagement, and promoted Brittany Smith to director of community engagement. Additionally, Christina Gorski, formerly of NBC and Fox Broadcasting, has joined the company as associate director of marketing.
“Suzanne and Brittany’s leadership has been vital in bringing our mission beyond broadcast,” says Fred Rogers’ President and CEO Paul Siefken. “And I’m very pleased to welcome Christina, who has quickly become a valuable member of our marketing team.”
Masri joined the company in 2015 and leads marketing, branding, publicity, and engagement efforts for its portfolio of series and brands. Smith joined the company in 1994 and oversees outreach and engagement efforts geared toward early learning. In her new role, Gorski manages marketing, branding, and publicity efforts across the Fred Rogers Productions catalog.
