Turner Broadcasting’s Animation, Young Adults and Kids Media’s Creative Group, which encompasses both on-air and off-channel creative departments, has a new VP of production in Susan Shipsky.
In her new role, Shipsky will be responsible for overseeing all video, print, special event and digital production and post-production for Cartoon Network, Adult Swim and Boomerang sponsorship and collateral material. She will also supervise all on-air branding, promotion production and post-production for Cartoon Network and Boomerang. Shipsky will also take on the role of a communications point-person between departments for all production-related requests involving marketing, public relations, research, advertising sales, Turner Studios, Williams Street Studios and external production companies.
