Jim Wiatt To Step Down?

Initial reports have it that the William Morris / Endeavor merger will have to take place without WMA boss Jim Wiatt, who is rumored to be getting eased into retirement as early as this Memorial Day weekend.

Details are few, but apparently there have been rumors for weeks that Wiatt may be stepping down and, according to Variety and Nikki Finke at Deadline Hollywood, he is now said to be on the verge of being “politely eased out with a statement” that he made the decision to leave.
