Oscar-winning songwriter MARILYN BERGMAN is stepping down as Pres./CEO of ASCAP. BERGMAN, 82, had led the AMERICAN SOCIETY OF COMPOSERS, AUTHORS AND PUBLISHERS for 15 years, but will remain on the board of directors. Her successor will be elected during a board meeting later this month.
In a statement, she said it was "the right time" to step aside, because of a number of music projects she is developing with her husband, ALAN BERGMAN.
