Dee Dee Myers is stepping down as executive vice president of worldwide corporate communications and public affairs for Warner Bros., reports Variety. Her decision ends a five-year run at the studio for Myers, who joined the company after a distinguished career that included a stint as White House press secretary during President Bill Clinton’s first term, continued the Variety report. She was first woman to hold the position.
