Frank Radice Resigns from NATAS; “Significant Differences” with Management

By Chris Ariens 

Frank Radice resigned as president of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences yesterday just hours before the group’s annual News & Documentary Emmy ceremony.

“It was due to significant differences between myself and management,” the former NBC executive told The Hollywood Reporter.

Radice held the position for less than nine months. He joined NATAS in December as CMO and was elevated to president Jan. 1.

“I am proud of what we accomplished this past year,” Radice said. “From the daytime show, the partnership with ATI, to the funding of the Jim McKay scholarship, to the video blogs. All in all, a great year.”
