ABZUG TO HEAD RCA PUBLICITY

Longtime RCA Records exec Jamie Abzug will head up the publicity department, taking over from Mika El-Baz.

Abzug has been named Senior Vice President and Head of Publicity. She will oversee RCA’s publicity team while spearheading the label’s corporate initiatives and continuing to play a pivotal role in individual artist campaigns. She will also continue to identify and pursue new avenues for artist publicity as well as larger partnerships and opportunities in the evolving media space. 

El-Baz is departing the company at the end of the month for a new opportunity.

Abzug, who started at J Records in late 2004, was most recently Head of Alternative Media Partnerships, in which capacity she helped oversee the label’s West Coast PR initiatives. Prior to that, she was Vice President, Publicity, working with Doja Cat, Christina Aguilera, Kesha and others.

Abzug agreed to take the job provided no one gives the HITS knuckleheads her cell number.
