A few weeks after the last statuette is presented Sunday, Richard Frank concludes his third and final term as president of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences--the body that governs the Emmy Awards. The former chairman of Walt Disney Television and current head of C3, a programming venture with cable giant Comcast Corp., Frank has led the academy six of the last 12 years, and few have affected the organization as profoundly in its 50-year history.

It used to be easier to pick out music for your tune-obsessed relatives. There were far fewer releases than there are now, and unless it was a hot album, chances are good that with enough research one could find sounds desired yet unpurchased. No more.

Still, that leaves a ton of music-centric gift options that aren't run-of-the-mill compact discs.

Walt Disney Co.'s top television executive, Richard H. Frank, 52, resigned Friday, ending weeks of speculation and marking another high-level departure at a company that until last year was one of the entertainment industry's most stable. Within the past year, Disney President Frank G. Wells died in a helicopter crash, Walt Disney Studios Chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg left in a bitter feud with Disney Chairman and CEO Michael Eisner and a batch of lower level executives departed as well.

Richard Frank, the new chairman of Disney Television & Telecommunications, has never received the public attention given Jeffrey Katzenberg, the outgoing chairman. But Frank is highly respected within the industry as having helped build an enormously profitable TV business for Disney. Now, under the reorganization of Walt Disney Studios, Frank will have responsibility for an estimated 80% of the studio's $4.5 billion in revenue.

An autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death. Thus far, he said, nothing points to foul play.
