WGA exec Reiner to exit


Grace Reiner, assistant executive director at the WGA West and a 20-year guild veteran, is leaving effective Dec. 1 to pursue an unspecified "new career opportunity." A participant in the past four rounds of guild contract negotiations, Reiner has served as the WGAW's "resident expert" on the guild's Minimum Basic Agreement with producers, noted officials, who said she will be "deeply missed." Reiner said in a statement it has been "and honor and a pleasure to work with ... countless writers during my tenure."
