We were told that another announcement was coming on Monday. And we thought it could possibly concern the elevation of someone to the position of COO, now that NP Singh has been elevated.

 

But that hasn’t happened, not yet. Meanwhile, Sony Pictures Entertainment announced that Man Jit Singh has been named President of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (SPHE), reporting to Michael Lynton, CEO, Sony Entertainment, Inc and Amy Pascal, Co-Chairman, Sony Pictures Entertainment.
