Based in New York, Dixon reports to chairman Mario J. Gabelli. He will be identifying, analyzing and guiding investments in media ventures in the private and public sectors. Dixon joins from UBS, where he was managing director and global strategist for the global media equity research team.

Chris "knows this business from the ground up, beginning as a producer and director of his own television programs to becoming one of the top analysts in the business," says Gabelli in a statement.

Dixon has worked as an analyst for Kidder Peabody and Paine Webber, shifting to UBS when it merged with the latter in 2000. He also independently produced television commercials and PBS specials before beginning his investment career.
