Dee Dee Myers, the first female White House press secretary, got a taste of Hollywood advising on the hit television show “The West Wing.” And now she’s headed to Tinseltown for a top position with Warner Bros studio.
Myers, who is currently a high-level communications consultant at D.C.-based Glover Park Group, will be the studio’s executive vice president, worldwide corporate communications and public affairs, according to a memo posted by Variety. Myers, also a political analyst (aka talking head), wrote a book published in 2008 titled, “Why Women Should Rule the World.”
Or at least the lucrative entertainment business.
Myers will report to Kevin Tsujihara, Warner Bros CEO, who told the Los Angeles Times in a statement, “[Myers’s] engaging and collaborative demeanor paired with her acute understanding of how to engage constituencies will help us strengthen our position as the leading global studio.” Tsujihara, to note, is a generous donor to Democratic politicians and organizations.
The Loop has reached out to Myers to offer our hearty congrats.
