Tribune Co.'s Dick Askin will assume the chairmanship of the Academy of
Television Arts & Sciences after the deadline to run for the office came and
went last week.

He replaces Bryce Zabel, who guided the academy through the aftermath of Sept. 11
and a rocky but ultimately lucrative license-fee renegotiation with the
broadcast networks.
