World Brief

Former MIP chief Rene Peres will once again become Reed Midem TV topper — but only until MIPTV in March.

Peres will take up the post Jan. 2, following the departure of TV division director Michael Weatherseed, the company said Thursday. Peres held the position from 1997 to 1999. The 2003 MIPTV runs March 24-28.
