FCC's Rogovin joins studio in exec VP post

Former FCC general counsel John Rogovin has joined Warner Bros. as exec VP and general counsel, filling the slot vacated by John Schulman’s retirement.

Warner Bros., which made the announcement Wednesday, said Rogovin will report to Chairman & CEO Barry Meyer.

Rogovin will oversee more than 125 lawyers responsible for the company’s negotiations, litigation, copyright and trademark, intellectual property and employment law.
