Pila Adds Entertainment To Meredith Legal Scope


In December 2014, Joshua Pila joined Meredith Corp. to serve as General Counsel of its Local Media Group, comprised of 17 broadcast TV stations in markets such as Portland, Ore.; Kansas City and St. Louis, Mo.; and Phoenix, Ariz.

He’s now adding another set of duties to his repertoire at Meredith.

Pila is getting promoted, and this sees him taking on legal needs for Meredith’s Entertainment division. He remains based in Atlanta.

“Josh has proven himself as a strong television legal executive, and as our entertainment unit continues to move more into video and television, he will be an even greater asset to the company as a whole,” said John Zieser, Chief Development Officer and General Counsel of Meredith Corp.

Among Meredith’s entertainment brands are PEOPLE, People en Espanol, Entertainment Weekly and Four M Studios.

Pila spent nearly five years at LIN Media before joining Meredith, first as Regulatory Counsel and, from January 2012, as Senior Counsel. He began his professional career in 2007 as a communications group associate at Dow Lohnes PLLC.

Pila has served as a volunteer NAB representative for the FCC Disability Advisory Committee.
