Peter Dobrow

 NBCU’s mun2 tapped Peter Dobrow as vp, communications. He joins the network after serving as executive director of corporate communications at Comcast. He reports to mun2 president Ruben Mendiola and is responsible for developing and executing strategic communications plans, internal communications and corporate brand positioning among key internal and external stakeholders. Dobrow tells us he’s a born-and-raised New Yorker and proud product of NYC public schools. Despite his tri-state roots (he went to college at Rutgers), he spent a decade on the West Coast. “I guess that makes me an East Coast/West Coast hybrid. I won’t pick which one is better… they both have their advantages,” he says.
