Jeff Gaspin, a former top executive at NBC Universal, and former Lifetime Chief Executive Andrea Wong are among the candidates being considered to run The CW, reports our friend Claire Atkinson at the New York Post.
Gaspin left NBC Universal after he failed to agree on a future with Comcast, and may still have a non-compete clause with NBC Universal, the story notes. Gaspin couldn’t immediately be reached for comment, the article says.
Wong left A&E Television Networks last year after it bought Lifetime. As TVWeek has previously reported, The CW has started interviewing candidates to replace outgoing entertainment president Dawn Ostroff, and is interviewing at least 10 people.
