Top Execs Step Down At “Fifth” Networks

Reports leaked out Monday that each of the “fifth” networks were losing top executives. UPN Entertainment president Tom Nunan confirmed to reporters later that he is leaving, telling the Washington Post, “The network is finally in really good shape and it’s time for me to work on building something new elsewhere.” He refused to discuss speculation that he had been told that his contract would not be renewed, the Post said. Meanwhile, Susanne Daniels confirmed that she is stepping down as co-president (with Jordan Levin) of The WB’s entertainment division.
