As Jeff Gaspin Prepares to Leave NBC, He Considers Taking a Board Seat at MGM, Which Is Just Emerging From Bankruptcy LA Times' Company Town blog

Is Jeff Gaspin about to roar again?

Could be.

"Gaspin, who will soon exit NBC once its acquisition by Comcast Corp. is complete, would join several other experienced Hollywood hands on the MGM board, including former Pixar Chief Financial Officer Ann Mather, former CBS Chief Financial Officer Fred Reynolds and former MySpace President Jason Hirschhorn," writes the Los Angeles Times' Company Town blog.

MGM has raised $500 million and is emerging from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

The article says that "Gaspin declined to comment on whether he would join the board."

The story notes that the other MGM board seats "are held by representatives of MGM's largest stakeholders, which previously owned much of its debt. They include Anchorage Capital, Highland Capital Management, Solus Alternative Asset Management and billionaire investor Carl Icahn."
