Deborah Dugan, Ousted Grammys CEO and Recording Academy reached a confidential agreement over the reasons the former leader was fired.
“The Recording Academy, Deborah Dugan have reached an agreement to end their differences and keep their agreement private,” Dugan and the academy said in a joint statement on Thursday.
Dugan was fired just days before the 2020 Grammys. Dugan has stated that the awards show was rigged, and riddled with conflicts of interests. Former CEO of Bono’s charity (RED), she was the first woman to be elected president and CEO of the academy.
This settlement comes just weeks after Harvey Mason jr. was named interim chief of the academy. The academy has named Valeisha butterfield Jones and Panos A. Panay co-presidents.
