Lippin Group breaks from Academy

Org resigns account after 12-year run

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences is going to need a new PR firm, with the Lippin Group resigning the account after a 12-year run.

Praisery head Dick Lippin notified the acad that the agency would honor its contract through the end of the year and the upcoming Emmy Awards ceremony.

The agency declined comment, but sources say there were some differences between the academy and the PR firm over the handling of the recent flap surrounding a plan to “time-shift” some awards to streamline the Emmy telecast. That proposal was subsequently scuttled after pushback from the talent guilds.

Academy officials had also raised the prospect of putting the account up for review after some complaints regarding the PR surrounding last year’s event.
