Fox exec VP of development Craig Erwich is ankling his post, a direct response to Kevin Reilly’s hiring as entertainment prexy.
“There is not enough of a meaningful job, and so he’s decided to move on,” newly upped Fox Entertainment chairman Peter Liguori told Daily Variety.
While Erwich will leave Fox Broadcasting, Liguori said he’s “trying to keep Craig within News Corp. in some form.” Just what sort of gig Liguori had in mind was unclear, but the exec was effusive in his praise of Erwich.
“He’s a beloved, respected, outstanding executive,” he said. “Unfortunately, the restructuring doesn’t offer him the challenges he needs.”
