Industry Moves: PRS Reorg, Babelgum NY, Lonely Planet TV

Andrew Shaw

PRS For Music: The royalty collector’s broadcast and online MD Andrew Shaw, who renegotiated YouTube’s license, inked Spotify’s deal and last year lowered online streaming rates, is leaving in a reorg. New CEO Robert Ashcroft is making two new units: Licensing (led by recorded-media MD Jeremy Fabinyi) will cover online and other media’s royalties, while Operations will cover backend ops.

Babelgum: The video site is promoting in its NYC office as it knuckles down to trying to make money – Douglas Dicconson to chief revenue officer, Seth Graeber to sales VP, Melissa Grossman to sales marketing VP and Jackie Garcia to market development executive.

Lonely Planet TV: Travel Channel Studios founder Sue Norton will be the BBCWW business’ new TV SVP and head, based at BBCWW Productions in LA. Via C21.
