Report: Don Buchwald/Fortitude Partnership Splits
April 30, 2013 at 3:55 AM (PT)
Talent agencies DON BUCHWALD AND ASSOCIATES and FORTITUDE have split, two years after the two agencies entered a partnership, reports DEADLINE.COM's NELLIE ANDREEVA.
“Our ability to move forward together was hampered by a difference in business cultures,” a memo from DON BUCHWALD to clients read. "We blame no one." No other reason was given, although ANDREEVA notes that the partnership had been rumored to be not "harmonious" and that FORTITUDE partners BEN PRESS and MICHAEL MCCONNELL were "blindsided by the move, which appears to be unilateral, instigated by DB&A."
BUCHWALD's firm represents several radio personalities, including HOWARD STERN.
