SEAN MCMANUS REPORTEDLY DISMISSES THREE TOP CBS SPORTS EXECS
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).
