HBO Head Leaves Post

Chris Albrecht, the head of HBO, has stepped down following his arrest over the weekend for what has been described as "suspicion of assault" and further revelation that he was involved some years ago in another case that resulted in a payment by HBO to a former HBO employee who alleged that Mr. Albrecht had assaulted her. Yesterday, the Los Angeles Times broke the news of that previous alleged assault by Mr. Albrecht, after which HBO is said to have paid the woman involved a settlement of $400,000. HBO's chief operating officer Bill Nelson will take over Mr. Albrecht's duties at the cable network.
