LOS ANGELES (AP) -- His network struggling in the ratings race, ABC Television President Steve Bornstein has resigned unexpectedly after less than a year on the job.
Bornstein, 50, stepped down voluntarily on Tuesday.
ABC has been struggling in the ratings race and trails rivals CBS and NBC. Walt Disney Co., which owns ABC, said it will not replace Bornstein and may reorganize the business unit that also includes 10 broadcast stations and the cable networks ESPN and ABC Family.
Dean to expose 'Deep Throat'
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Thirty years after the 1972 Watergate break-in, former White House counsel John Dean intends to publish an electronic book revealing who he believes is "Deep Throat," the anonymous informant who helped unseat President Nixon.
San Francisco-based online magazine Salon.com will offer the e-book June 17, managing editor Scott Rosenberg said Tuesday. Dean previously has written political commentary and book reviews for Salon.
"Obviously, he has strong personal interest in the subject," Rosenberg said. "After a lot of careful research that he details in the book, he's pretty certain he knows who it was."
TLC won't replace Lopes
ATLANTA (AP) -- TLC won't replace Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, who died last week in a car crash in Honduras.
Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the Grammy-winning R&B trio will release its fourth album and plans to continue performing, but she and Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins won't add a new member.
"As for Lisa being replaced -- never," Thomas said. "You can't replace a TLC girl. The chemistry we have is something God gave us. You can't put that together."
TLC, the top-selling female group of all time, began working on its latest album last summer. Lopes wasn't scheduled to be featured on each song, so her death shouldn't affect the album's release, Thomas said.
