/// Kevin Tsujihara is the Anti-Piracy, Always-Authenticated Choice for CEO of Warner Bros. Entertainment

January 28, 2013  |  Media Week

In a surprising move at Time Warner, Inc. today, Kevin Tsujihara was named to succeed Barry Meyer as head of Warner Bros. Entertainment today, beating out the heads of both the movie and TV divisions (Bruce Rosenblum and Jeff Robinov, respectively). Tsujihara will replace Barry Meyer, who is retiring at the end of 2013 after 14 years at the headship of the entertainment group. Since 2005, Tsujihara has run the home entertainment business for Time Warner, a section of the company that's undergone serious turmoil in recent years as DVD sales have cratered and replacement physical formats like Blu-Ray and HD have failed to catch on to the same degree that DVDs did. Tsujihara shuttered Warner Premiere last year as the Home Entertainment division continued to focus more on cloud-based formats; in 2011, the home entertainment division acquired Flixster.
