Turell left Paradigm in June 2016 to launch Turell Media Strategies.

Earlier, he worked at Time Warner as EVP network communications at The WB and head of worldwide corporate communications at Turner Broadcasting Systems.

He began his network executive career at Fox.

Calling Turrell “a deft corporate strategist with impeccable relationships and a track record of success at the agency, network and studio sides of the business,” the agency said it would rely on him to help develop and execute its plans for further growth and acquisitions.
