Publicist Bumble Ward Out at Twentieth Century Fox

Bumble Ward’s stint at Twentieth Century Fox as executive vice president of film publicity has turned out to be short-lived. But rather than crying over it, she tells Indiewire’s Anne Thompson that she is eager for the next phase of her career to take hold:

“I’ve never been so giddy about the opportunities out there,” she says. “There’s a sweet spot with movies, directors and social media.”

Ward joined Fox in August of 2011 and had a contract that ran through February of 2013. But her time with the News Corp. family ended officially yesterday.

Thompson points out that Ward’s departure comes after changes related to the exit of studio co-chairman Tom Rothman. A number of consultants have been working recently in the Fox film PR department, alongside long-time department employee Carol Cundiff. The Ward news was first reported by Deadline’s Mike Fleming.
