A&E's Raven, Phoenix's Changle to be co-chairs

HOLLYWOOD — Ronald Lauder, founder and chairman of Central European Media Enterprises, will receive the Intl. Academy of TV Arts & Sciences’ Intl. Emmy Directorate Award for pioneering independent TV broadcasting in Central and Eastern Europe.

“CME was one of the first to enter Central and Eastern Europe after the fall of communism. It participated in building independent media and in the process became a financial success,” said I-Academy prexy-CEO Bruce Paisner. CME owns nets in six countries reaching 82 million people.

The I-Academy announced earlier this week that A&E TV Networks prexy-CEO Abbe Raven and Phoenix TV chairman-CEO Liu Changle will be co-chairs for the 34th I-Emmy Awards Nov. 20 in New York.
