Presidents Promoted at Fox Studio

Jul 9, 2007  •  Post A Comment

After a decade leading the studio as presidents, Dana Walden and Gary Newman have been promoted to chairmen of Twentieth Century Fox Television.
The title change means there is at least one open president slot at the studio. Moreover, the shift comes on the eve of an expected announcement from the Fox network, where former NBC Entertainment President Kevin Reilly may join as president of programming and Peter Liguori may be elevated to a chairman position.
Should Mr. Reilly join the network, the promotions of Ms. Walden and Mr. Newman will keep them on the same executive level as Mr. Liguori.
“Under Gary and Dana’s leadership for the past decade, 20th Century Fox Television has achieved unparalleled success in the television marketplace and has been at the forefront of successfully leveraging new technologies to extend its hit franchises,” said Peter Chernin, president and chief operating officer of News Corp., to whom they will continue to report. “Their promotion to chairmen is richly deserved.”
The duo have shared the president title since 1999. Twentieth productions for next season include “24,” “Back to You,” “Bones,” “Prison Break,” “The Simpsons,” “Family Guy,” “K-Ville,” “Shark,” “My Name Is Earl,” “Beauty and the Geek” and “How I Met your Mother.”
