Key executives continue to head out the door at E! Entertainment. Just a few weeks after word surfaced that E! President Suzanne Kolb was headed out, Cyndi McClellan, president of network strategy and news, revealed that she, too, is leaving, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
McClellan gave word today to staffers, the piece reports, noting that a successor is not yet in place.
In a statement, the network said: “Cyndi has been an integral part of E!’s growth to become the No. 1 entertainment news brand for over 12 years, and she will be greatly missed for her talent, leadership and friendship. Having led three different divisions throughout her tenure, Cyndi has touched all of us here with her consummate professionalism, creativity and strategic vision. Whatever she undertakes next, we’ll all be watching and cheering her on.”
The THR report adds: “Her tenure at the network began in 2002 as the vice president of research, overseeing, among many things, the acquisition of off-net rights to ‘Sex and the City.’ In her most recent role, she oversaw the news division and all news information programming. That included ‘E! News,’ ‘Live From E!,’ ‘Beyond Candid With Giuliana Rancic,’ ‘Untold with Maria Menounos,’ ‘True Hollywood Story’ and many others.”
