If Not Mary, Maybe Cary, Billy, Jenny, Rudi, Susi, Vici
Cary Sherman "is expected to be named president/CEO" of the RIAA, says a Billboard story here.
But if not him, maybe:
* W.J. 'Billy' Tauzin (R-La.)
* Jennifer Dunn (R-Wash.)
* Former New York mayor Rudolph Giuliani
* TV anchor and former New York Congresswoman Susan Molinari
* Victoria Clarke [who resigned as US assistant secretary of defense for public affairs and Pentagon spokesperson on June 16].
Sherman is president/general counsel who, "shows up at major RIAA litigation (usually for file sharing cases) for photo ops and to make Saddam Hussein like claims that they have won their case, when, in fact they haven't," as boycott-riaa sums it up here.
Billboard says, "Rosen's departure was announced in January, when the trade group said her term would expire 'by the end of the year.'
"At the time, it did not seem that she would be leaving this soon. A committee spearheaded by industry executives and talent search firm Korn/Ferry International continues to look for a successor. Sources tell Bulletin that Rosen will stay on as a consultant to the RIAA for one year."
Billboard adds that the RIAA has, "apparently not yet considered" Mary Bono (R-Calif.), but - "Last week, an aide said Bono would be interested in the job."
