Dan Glickman will relinquish his post as chairman and CEO of the Motion Picture Association Of America (MPAA) when his contract expires in September 2010. Glickman revealed his decision in an interview that appeared late on Sunday night on the website Politico.com, saying: "My guess is that I'll end up in the nonprofit or academic world. People who know me know I've had these great extracurricular interests that have been very significant in driving me." Arnold Schwarzenegger is among the list of possible successors floated by Politico, alongside former Rep Harold Ford Jr, Universal Music lobbyist Matt Gerson, Rep Howard Berman, Richard Bates of Disney, MPAA COO Bob Pisano, and federal affairs chief Michael O'Leary.
