Marie Moore has been let go as senior vice president of communications at WarnerMedia, TheWrap has learned exclusively. There, she recently worked on HBO Max, TBS, TNT and TruTV and reported to Kevin Brockman.
A direct replacement for Moore has yet to be named.
Moore joined TBS and TNT in 2016 as a vice president of communications. She was promoted to the SVP level in early 2018.
“Marie has been an incredible partner in helping to shape and propel our narrative and amplify the success of our networks,” her boss Kevin Reilly had said at the time of Moore’s promotion. “She has brought tremendous flair and execution to our publicity initiatives, and she operates with the agility needed to crack the code and connect with consumers in our dynamic but complicated media landscape today.”
Since then, Moore’s job — and the companies involved — has changed. AT&T purchased HBO, Turner and their shared parent company Time Warner in June 2018 for $85 billion.
That acquisition made way for WarnerMedia, which will birth streaming service HBO Max in May 2020 at a price of $14.99 per month. Click here to learn more about the new Netflix competitor.
Before joining Turner, Moore was a senior vice president of public relations at IFC.
In October, WarnerMedia promoted a trio of HBO executives in a restructuring of its communications department.
