CBS Entertainment Group has appointed Chris Ender, who has been with the company for 24 years, as its new head of communications.

Ender has served as executive vice president, communications at CBS since 2013. His previous positions included SVP communications and VP media relations.

He succeeds Dana McClintock, who announced that he was leaving CBS in March. McClintock’s departure followed the exit of CBS interim boss Joe Iannello, who was replaced by former vice chairman of NBCUniversal Content Studio George Cheeks. Ianello had assumed the job after the ouster of Les Moonves.

In a memo to CBS staff, Cheeks said that Ender “will be responsible for all public relations, media relations and corporate communications functions across our CBS divisions.”

Ender will continue to be based in CBS’ Studio City offices, while vice president, corporate communications Rick McCabe, will lead its New York team.
