Each network within AMC is unique, but Bragan incorporated an across-the-board series of PSAs for this year’s Black History Month, airing them on brands ranging from AMC to WE tv. The customized spots explained what Black History Month means to participants, members of the Congressional Black Caucus, which included Reps Donald Payne, Jr. (D-NJ), Gregory Meeks (D-NY) and Val Demings (D-FL)—and they’re just one example of Bragan’s innovative work to keep marketing around the AMC family of nets current and outstanding in the field.
