Ergen Brings In Former Sirius Chairman Clayton As Dish CEO

Charlie Ergen, Echostar

Shades of Barry Diller. Charlie Ergen is handing over the CEO and president roles of Dish Network (NSDQ: DISH) to Joseph Clayton, former CEO and chairman of Sirius (NSDQ: SIRI) Satellite Radio Inc. Clayton joins the board; Ergen remains chairman when the changeover takes place June 20.

The move mirrors his action with EchoStar (NSDQ: SATS), when he stepped aside as president and CEO in 2009.

Release.
