SEAN MCMANUS REPORTEDLY DISMISSES THREE TOP CBS SPORTS EXECS
Published January 31, 1997
CBS Sports President Sean McManus "has fired his division's top business affairs executives," according to Stephen Battaglio of the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER. Sources tell Battaglio that three business VPs -- Doug Jacobs, Brian Fielding and Noel Berman -- were dismissed this week. CBS declined comment, but one network exec said the moves were the result of McManus' "desire to handpick his own business affairs group" (HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, 1/31). GGP TO TWI: GGP's Bob Horowitz will replace McManus as the programming negotiator at IMG's Trans World Int'l (Rudy Martzke, USA TODAY, 1/31).
