Just once – once! – I’d like to see a big
corpse corp hire somebody who entertains people to a “top entertainment post.” You know, like hiring a creative person to be a “creative executive.”
But that would be silly, no?

EXCLUSIVE: Microsoft is taking a major step towards growing its entertainment footprint. I’ve learned that the software giant is in talks with former top CBS TV executive and now CBS consultant Nancy Tellem for a high level post, in which she would lead Microsoft’s expanded efforts in entertainment. Details on the position are still sketchy as I hear negotiations are still in early stages and an agreement is probably several weeks away, but it is believed to be a broad position overseeing creative and business partnerships as well as the production of original content across Microsoft platforms, including the flagship Xbox Live game and video service.
