Jared Albert

Senior Publicist, Animal Planet

Albert’s four years at the network has led to great success, including campaigns for the “Puppy Bowl,” “Pit Bulls & Parolees,” “Call of the Wildman” and “Off the Hook.” His domination of all things Puppy Bowl is particularly amazing considering all the sponsor demands, countless media requests, celebrity and talent issues and more. He even got First Lady Michelle Obama involved! “I’m most excited about the growth of unconventional media outlets and digital properties that will allow us to efficiently connect with our viewers and fans,” he says.

I’m most excited about the growth of unconventional media outlets and digital properties that will allow us to efficiently connect with our viewers and fans.

What would be your ultimate dream job?

Who has been your biggest mentor and why?

My former manager, Brian Eley, who has supported me and provided invaluable advice throughout my entire career at Discovery Communications.

What three things can’t you live without?

iPhone, coffee and my Cablefax subscription.
