DreamWorks Ani brings Freston on board


DreamWorks Animation SKG said Monday it named Tom Freston to its board of directors. Freston was ousted as president and CEO of Viacom 13 months ago and replaced by Philippe Dauman. Viacom's Paramount Pictures unit purchased DreamWorks in December 2005 for $1.6 billion, though DWA is a separate, publicly traded company run by CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg.
