Amy Thurlow will step down as president of Billboard Music Awards producer Dick Clark Productions at the end of June.
Thurlow, who has been with DCP since 2014 and served as its president for the past year, is leaving the company to pursue other opportunities. Her departure comes as Dick Clark Productions, which produces several other awards shows in addition to the BBMAs, including the Golden Globe Awards, has seen viewership for such programming nosedive during the pandemic (though recent upticks for live sports could offer a glimmer of hope for awards shows as well).
Her departure also comes a month after NBC said it will not air the 2022 Golden Globes following a February Los Angeles Times story that revealed the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which puts on the awards, has no Black members. The HFPA recently adopted a new code of conduct, but organizations including Time's Up, a coalition of PR firms and streamers Netflix and Amazon have threatened to boycott the Globes unless more concrete progress is evident. As of publication, the 2022 awards do not have a TV home.
