Liz Dolan, who led marketing at Oprah's new network prior to leaving months before its debut, has joined News Corp. as CMO of the Fox International Channels.
Dolan will report to Hernan Lopez, CEO of the business unit, and will be based in Los Angeles. The post is a new one, which includes oversight of consumer and trade marketing, branding and corporate communications for the channels outside the U.S. Programming includes the National Geographic Channel and distribution of Fox-branded content.
Dolan was CMO of the OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network from December 2008 to June 2010. The network launched earlier this month on Discovery. She also logged 11 years until 1997 at Nike, including a top role in global marketing.
Lopez stated that Dolan has a "track record of innovation and results" and "understands what it means to bring together local passion and expertise with a broad global brand vision."
Between Nike and OWN, Dolan co-hosted (with her four sisters) and executive-produced a talk show syndicated by ABC Radio.
Fox International sends programming worldwide in 35 languages, and runs an international online ad program involving a "dot-Fox" (.Fox) URL.
