The common thread in SAEM Assistant Professor and Chair Paige Beal's business career is entertainment media technology. Her business career includes media marketing and management in radio (Clear Channel - 3WS), TV (Comcast Spotlight - ESPN, USA, TNT, AMC, CNN, MTV, etc.) and Internet (WPXI - Cox). Her multimedia expertise translated into the success of Moxie Marketing Media Consultancy conducting training programs for media sales. That training experience foreshadowed a teaching career at Point Park University in the sports, arts and entertainment management department of the Rowland School of Business. Beal took a three-year hiatus from Point Park University to rejoin Comcast - and has now come full circle to bring her professional connections and experience back into the classroom.
