Beabout commented, "Kevin has been a strong leader in the Business & Legal Affairs group and demonstrated a keen understanding of the respective Starz business and the legal matters affecting their operations during this aggressive period of growth and new activity. Similarly, Todd has proven to be an invaluable contributor for the core Starz pay TV business, with a great understanding of business matters for our respective distribution agreements and relations. I congratulate both on their well-deserved promotions."
