Fox Entertainment’s service Tubi has named Carolyn Forrest as Senior Vice President, General Counsel, reporting to Tubi CEO Farhad Massoudi and based in San Francisco.
Forrest, most recently Vice President, Legal Affairs, for Fox Television Stations, will serve as the service’s chief legal officer, overseeing its business affairs and legal team. Tubi – that has over 20,000 movies and television shows from Hollywood studio and it’s available in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Australia – has been acquired by Fox in March for $440 million.
Prior to Fox, Forrest was Vice President and General Counsel for New World Television, which Fox acquired in 1997. She previously worked for NBC as an assistant general attorney as her first in-house position. Before that she worked for law firms Dow Lohnes & Albertson and Skadden Arps as an associate in media and M&A litigation. «Carolyn combines vast knowledge across the industry with a proven track record of guiding media companies with strategic IP legal oversight», said Massoudi.
