MUMBAI: Fox veteran and current COO for Fox Television Group Joe Earley will step down from his role at the end of the year.  



?Over the past 21 years, I've had the great fortune of working alongside some of the most talented and inspiring people in the business, from my co-workers and bosses, to the talent on our shows, both in front of and behind the camera. Because of the entrepreneurial spirit that pervades Fox, and the incredible support of the teams across the network, I have been afforded unbelievable opportunities for growth and new experiences. I'm very grateful to Dana Walden, Gary Newman and Peter Rice for their leadership and friendship, and for inviting me to join them at the Fox Television Group, which has allowed me to also appreciate the impressive team on the studio side. All of this new opportunity, however, as rewarding as it is, has led me further and further from the creative process, which is really where my heart wants to be. So, while I will miss my extended Fox family terribly, it is time for me to pursue the proverbial, ?next chapter.? As a former publicist, I thought I would never use that phrase, but it turns out that sometimes it's true," said Earley.



Fox Television Group chairmen and CEOs Gary Newman and Dana Walden added,  ?Joe is one of the most talented executives and gifted leaders we?ve ever had the pleasure of working with, so we are saddened that he has decided to step down. We have been discussing his desire to get closer to the creative process for a while now, and although we would love for him to stay at Fox for another 21 years, we understand and fully support his plans to take on new challenges. We are extremely grateful to Joe for his partnership, strategic insight and all of his contributions to the company, and we know we?ll be working with him again soon.?

 

Fox Networks Group chairman and CEO Peter Rice said, ?I have been fortunate to work with Joe for nearly seven years, and one of the things I admire most about him is the deep level of trust and confidence he?s built with our creators, talent and industry peers. His sharp business sense, passion for creativity and ability to inspire and mobilize teams have made him an extraordinary and beloved executive here at Fox ? and he will undoubtedly have that same impact no matter what path he chooses to take next.?

 

Earley has served as COO for Fox Television Group since August 2014, where he?s had oversight of marketing and communications, digital, research, talent relations, scheduling and audience strategy at Fox Broadcasting Company, and partnered with 20th Century Fox Television?s development, production, business affairs, marketing and finance leads on strategic initiatives, as well as publicity and talent relations at the studio.



Previously, Earley served as COO of Fox Broadcasting Company, where he played a key management role in all areas of the network, including scripted programming and development, casting, scheduling, marketing and communications, research, audience strategy, digital and business affairs. Prior to that, he was president of marketing & communications for the network, having risen from previous positions as executive vice president of marketing & communications; executive vice president of publicity, corporate communications and creative services; senior vice president, publicity and corporate communications; and vice president, entertainment publicity.



Before joining Fox as senior publicist in 1994, Earley spent several years in Media Relations at HBO. He began his entertainment career in production and development with producer Gale Anne Hurd.
