Senior Vice President, Marketing, Communications & Broadcasting
Erik Braverman is in his 14th year with the Dodgers and has had a major impact on the growth of the Dodger brand as it continues to expand beyond the world of baseball. In his role as Senior Vice President, Marketing, Communications and Broadcasting, Braverman manages the Dodgers’ local and national broadcast relationships and directs the club’s marketing and communications initiatives, helping drive ticket sales and place the club in a position to lead the Majors in attendance each of the last seven years. He also oversees the club’s internal productions, creative efforts and the Dodgers’ social media, which has set the standard for fan engagement and grown to become one of the most followed teams in baseball across all platforms. Braverman, an openly gay executive, oversees the Dodgers’ PRIDE Business Resource Group and launched the club’s first Pride Night in 2013, which has helped foster the team’s strong year-round relationship with the LGBTQ community and grown into the most well-attended annual event of its kind in all of sports.
Prior to joining the Dodgers, Braverman served as Vice President of Programming and Operations for ABC Radio stations, KABC, ESPN Radio and Radio Disney from 1996 – 2008. He was at the programming helm of the Disney-owned Los Angeles flagship when ESPN Radio was introduced to Los Angeles in 2000.
Braverman was the Director of Talk and Sports Programming at Westwood One Radio from 1994-1996 where he oversaw a number of nationally syndicated shows. He moved to Los Angeles in 1989 where he worked as Executive Producer at KFI & KOST Radio.
A native of Houston, Texas, Braverman resides in West Hollywood with his husband, Jonathan Cottrell.
