NATAS Chief Resigns on Day of News Emmys

Frank Radice resigns abruptly, citing “significant differences” with management of the New York-based TV organization.

Less than a year in office, National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences President Frank Radice resigned abruptly Monday afternoon, citing "significant differences" with management.

The resignation comes the same day as the 30th annual NATAS News and Documentary Emmys ceremony in New York.

The New York-based NATAS organizes the Daytime, Sports, News and Documentary and Public Service Emmys, while the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences handles the Primetime Emmys.

Radice, who started as president early this year, told the Hollywood Reporter, "It was due to significant differences between myself and management."

 

He also held the title of NATAS chief marketing officer.

 

Radice is a veteran TV producer and marketer who spent more than a decade at NBC. Before that he worked with CNN.
