Lippin Group Resigns TV Academy Account

Lippin Group has resigned its account with the Academy of Television Arts & Science after a 12 year run. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the agency “routinely had to deal with leaks from the Academy on internal Emmy matters,” and also had to navigate “a much bigger firestorm following the TV Academy’s board of governors’ vote in July to approve time-shifting of eight categories from the live Primetime Emmy ceremony.”

The agency declined to comment to PRNewser. A statement from Dick Lippin appeared in The Hollywood Reporter story, in which he said the agency is “extremely proud of the role we have played in serving the academy and its Foundation.”
