Dee Dee Myers, former press secretary to President Clinton, is leaving a managing director slot at Glover Park Group to head communications for Warner Bros. Entertainment.
Myers, who is trading Washington for Los Angeles, is slated to take the executive VP, worldwide corporate communications and public affairs, role on Sept. 2, reporting to newly minted CEO Kevin Tsujihara.
Susan Fleishman is stepping down from the role after nine years, most under former CEO Barry Meyer, who remains chairman.
Warner Bros., one of the six major film and television studios, is a unit of Time Warner.
Myers was Clinton's first-term press secretary and the first woman to hold the job, following stints in Democratic politics in Los Angeles and DC. She joined Glover Park, now owned by WPP, in 2010 after working as a journalist, political commentator and advisor to NBC's "The West Wing."
She is married to Vanity Fair senior writer Todd Purdum and is the author of "Why Women Should Rule the World" (HarperCollins 2009).
