A former WarnerMedia executive who was in charge of development at HBO Max has re-surfaced at AT&T in the role of a top digital executive, The Desk has learned.
Jason Press spent several years at AT&T’s WarnerMedia subsidiary after the telecom acquired You.i TV, the technology platform that eventually powered AT&T’s premium streaming service HBO Max. Earlier this year, AT&T spun WarnerMedia off into a separate company, which merged with Discovery; Press left Warner Bros Discovery (WBD) amid a wave of executive resignations shortly after the merger was finalized.
Now, Press has re-surfaced at AT&T, where he has been hired as the telecom’s chief digital officer. That position was vacated earlier this summer by Bala Subramanian, who left AT&T for UPS.
Neither Press nor AT&T have formally announced his hiring as of Monday, but according to information learned by The Desk, Press was hired by AT&T in August and started around the same time.
