Industry Moves: Jeff King Moves From FIM to 19 Entertainment As U.S. New Media head

1 Comment

Jeff King, the head of American Idol’s digital media efforts (formally VP & GM at Fox Interactive Media, Fox Branded Entertainment and Americanidol.com) has left and joined Simon Fuller’s talent and production shop 19 Entertainment, as Head of Digital Entertainment, US. 19 is the company behind Pop Idol (American Idol here), so King was involved with 19 in his role at FIM prior to this. Also, Beckhams are managed by 19 as well, and the company produced the Victoria Beckham TV special on NBC recently.

At FIM’s end, Don Wilcox has joined as Vice President, Fox Branded Entertainment, in the position King. Prior to this he was Executive Director, Marketing at Sony Pictures Digital.

I worked for Jeff in a previous job. He is very driven and creative, knows the business extremely well, and gets the most out of staff. That is a great hire for 19. I'll be interested to see what direction they go in digitally.
