Dodgers' PR alums moving on up

Derrick Hall When Frank and Jamie McCourt bought the Dodgers in 2004, they asked Derrick Hall to remain as the club spokesman. Hall declined, went to work for KB Homes, then got back into baseball in 2005, joining the Diamondbacks as senior vice president of communications.

Hall was promoted to chief executive today when Jeff Moorad resigned to pursue ownership of the Padres. John Moores, the current owner of the Padres, is exploring the sale of all or part of the club amid his divorce proceedings.

Hall had served as the Diamondbacks' president since 2006.

Camille Johnston, who was the Dodgers' spokeswoman from 2005 to '07, recently was named special assistant to President-elect Barack Obama and director of communications for the incoming first lady, Michelle Obama.
