Nicholson Names Pfeifle RNC Deputy Director of Communications.
Republican National Committee Chairman Jim Nicholson today named Mark Pfeifle as the RNC's deputy director of communications.
"Under Mark's direction the RNC's radio department became a major force in American political journalism," said Nicholson. "In particular, Mark has helped radio talk shows across America provide an alternative to the Establishment media. He'll bring that same creativity and leadership to his new position as we battle to take back the White House and expand our Republican majorities."
Pfeifle took the helm of the RNC's Radio department in 1998, before adding responsibilities as deputy press secretary in 1999. Prior to that, he was sales and marketing director at the Grand Forks (ND) Air Base Leader newspaper, station manager at KDRQ Radio in Wishek, ND, and freelance stringer for the Associated Press, and Knight-Ridder and Gannett newspapers.
In his new position, Pfeifle will work with RNC Communications Director Cliff May to oversee television, radio, press and Internet communications, and will assist in the management of the RNC Communications Division.
"Since coming to the RNC, Mark has distinguished himself as a fighter for truth, justice and the American way, " said May. "His new position will give him expanded opportunities for combat."
Pfeifle, 27, received a bachelor's degree in communication from the University of North Dakota in 1997. He is a native of Wishek and Mayville, ND.
