The Alabama Republican Party announced earlier this week that Jeannie Faherty is its new Communications Director.
“We are delighted Jeannie is joining our team. She not only has the strong skill set to take on this very busy and important position, but has also been active in Republican politics for many years,” said Alabama Republican Party Chairman Terry Lathan.
Faherty has worked on numerous successful political campaigns as a media consultant, and she has served as Communications Director and Executive Director for the Jefferson County Republican Party. She also served as the former media director for the grassroots organization, Allied Women, which worked to encourage conservative women to become more active in politics.
She began her career as a news producer for 1010 WINS in New York City, the nation’s oldest and most successful all-news radio station. During her decade plus career with the station, Ms. Faherty won numerous awards for breaking news and politics, including the prestigious National Edward R. Murrow Award, one of the industry’s highest honors, as part of the team covering the 9/11 attacks on our nation.
Faherty lives with her family in Vestavia Hills.
