Dean Valentine’s long-awaited appointment to succeed Lucie Salhany as CEO of UPN is expected to be announced at a 10 a.m. press conference today at the Beverly Hilton hotel.

The press conference will be attended by Paramount’s Jonathan Dolgen and Kerry McCluggage, as well as Chris-Craft’s Bill Siegel and Evan Thompson. Valentine, now president of Walt Disney TV and Walt Disney TV Animation, has been expected to take the job since mid-August, (Daily Variety, Aug. 13). But the studio still had some release papers to sign before Valentine could start his new job, delaying the process.
