LOS ANGELES (AP) — A veteran publicist is the new president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
The organization's board of governors elected Cheryl Boone Isaacs to the position Tuesday evening.
She is the first woman to hold the post in three decades and the first African-American president in the academy's history.
Isaacs was elected to a one-year term but is eligible to serve four successive terms. She succeeds Hawk Koch, who served for one year but was ineligible for re-election.
Isaacs previously served as first vice president of the film academy, which announced its new president via Twitter.
