SCOTT PERKINS has been named VP of Creative at Fox’s operations in DC. He begins July 14, which is the first day that former VP Creative MIKE HENRY begins his retirement. Yes, he’ll be waking up and not rushing out the door to do TV. He’s had some amazingly fun jobs in his career, like being a VP at Disney and handling comedy promotion at CBS Network. He’s been in Chicago and Portland and Cleveland and LA…the life of a TV creative. He’ll be relocating to the Midwest and will spend more time with his daughter. But knowing him, be assured he’ll be writing in his clever style if only in a journal. Join me in wishing Scott the best and Mike all the very best – for a career that was always Well Dunne!
