Dominic Pagone Promoted to New Senior Communications Role at FX
FX is upping Dominic Pagone.
The network's former vice president of media relations will move into its newly created position of senior vice president of communications. In his new role, the publicity vet will oversee trade communications, talent relations, public affairs and photo publicity for FX, FXX, FXM, and FXP.
The promotion means that Pagone will vacate his consumer media relations responsibilities, leaving the network's vice presidents of media relations, Roslyn Bibby and Lana Kim, to lead all programming publicity efforts for FX, FXX and FXM.
“Dominic has been an instrumental member of the FX publicity team and I’m really happy for him on this well-deserved promotion,” said FX's executive vice president of communications John Solberg, to whom Pagone will report. “In this new position, he will help facilitate a more defined structure for our department, which will allow us to more effectively support of our talent, shows and networks.”
During his 14 year tenure at the network, Pagone served as the lead publicist for Sons of Anarchy throughout its seven-season run, The League during its first six seasons and as co-lead publicist on Justified for its entire run. More recently, he handled launch publicity for The Strain, Married and Man Seeking Woman. In his earlier roles of manager and then director of media relations at FX, Pagone grew to become point publicist on Rescue Me and co-point publicist on The Shield, in addition to working on launch publicity for It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
