Media Veterans Jim McNamara And Dennis Miller Join Global Eagle Acquisition Corp. Board Of Directors

LOS ANGELES, July 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Eagle Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ: EAGL, EAGLW, EAGLU), a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) led by media executives Harry Sloan and Jeff Sagansky, announced that, following its successful IPO which raised approximately $190 million, former Telemundo CEO Jim McNamara and Dennis Miller, a venture capitalist and former Sony Pictures Entertainment Executive Vice President, joined its Board of Directors.

"Jim and Dennis bring a wealth of knowledge and experience as well as long-established relationships with executives in the media, technologies and investment sectors to Global Eagle's operation," said Harry Sloan.

"As Global Eagle was formed to take advantage of the investing and operating expertise of its management team to acquire media and entertainment businesses with high growth potential in the United States and internationally, McNamara and Miller will be valued members of this company's Board of Directors," added Jeff Sagansky.

Bringing over 25 years of experience as a leading international film and television executive as well as extensive broadcast experience in the US and Latin America, Jim McNamara is the founder of Panamax Films, LLC, an independent film production company focusing on the US Latino and Latin American film going audience. McNamara also serves as the non-executive Chairman of Cine Latino, the leading Spanish-language premium film channel in the United States, and non-executive chairman of Pantelion Films, a Latino-focused Hollywood studio that is a partnership between Lionsgate Entertainment and Spanish-language media company Grupo Televisa.

From 1999 to 2005, McNamara was President and CEO at Telemundo Communications Group, Inc., the operator of US Spanish-language broadcast network Telemundo. From April 1996 to June 1998, McNamara held the post of President at Universal Television Enterprises, a television production company where his responsibilities included domestic syndication first-run programming and international sales.

McNamara joined Universal from New World, where he served as CEO from 1991 to 1995. He joined New World in 1986 as Senior Vice President and, over the next five years, was promoted to Executive Vice President and then President of New World International before being named CEO in 1991.
