Toby Byrne, Nancy Croston and Keith Schreiber were all promoted to vice presidents of sales for Fox Broadcasting Co., while Michael Bish was named VP of Midwest sales, said Neil Mulcahy, Fox’s senior VP of sales.

Croston started at Fox in 1994 as an account-service rep, moving to account executive in 1996. She will be responsible for Fox’s integrated-marketing accounts, such as corporate sponsorships for American Idol: Search for a Superstar
and Joe Millionaire
