Oct 21, 2001 | 11:21am EDT

In what analysts saw as further evidence of perilous instability under the feet of Michael Ovitz, Alan Berger, a top manager at Ovitz' Artists Management Group, has bailed out of the company and has moved to Creative Artists Agency.

Berger, who had spent 13 years at ICM before joining Ovitz's talent management firm two years ago, represents such high-profile news talent as Katie Couric, Larry King, Connie Chung, and her husband, Maury Povich.

Another high-profile Berger client is NYPD Blue co-creator, David Milch. They are all expected to follow Berger to CAA.
