Viacom has promoted Kurt Patat to an expanded role as Senior Vice President of Communications for Paramount Network and CMT, a dual role in which he will lead corporate communications, media relations, internal communications, and oversee publicity teams in New York, Los Angeles and Nashville for both brands.
“After masterfully elevating the profiles for several of Viacom’s brands, Kurt’s arrival at Paramount Network is key to becoming a fan-favorite home for quality scripted and unscripted programming,” said Kevin Kay, President of Paramount Network, TV Land and CMT. “He’s a great leader who’s savvy, tactical, highly-creative, and very passionate about our brands.”
Patat joined CMT as Senior Vice President of Communications in May, 2015 where he created corporate communication practices and led press campaigns for the network’s biggest series and events to-date.
