Midway chair Shari Redstone declared the company was seeking "dynamic new leadership," Midway has decided to stick with, well, the guy it was stuck with. Interim president and CEO Matt Booty -- in place since Zucker jumped ship back in March -- has been named the "official" president and CEO of the beleaguered publisher. Um ... Congratulations?
As interim captain, Booty displayed stalwart steadfastness when he made the call to sever several "underperforming projects" from his ship's cargo earlier this month. It was said that Booty angled his face away from the crew, just slightly, so that they would not see the tear drop trickle down his cheek as he watched the dead weight sink below the waves.
