Grammy Shakeup Leaves Fundis in Charge

Nashville-based producer Garth Fundis will serve as interim president of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences — the Grammy-granting body — until a successor is named for C. Michael Greene. Greene resigned Saturday night after 13 years at the helm. Fundis, who has worked with Don Williams, Trisha Yearwood and the late Keith Whitley, is chairman of the Recording Academy’s Board of Trustees. Greene, 52, will act as a consultant during a transition period. The Los Angeles Times, citing sources close to the negotiations, reported that Greene had three years left on his contract and will be paid “as much as $8 million as part of a severance package.” 04/29/02
