I’m not sure what the fuss is about. Sarah Greenberg Roberts was Lionsgate’s longtime PR-woman overseeing corporate publicity as well as theatrical and home entertainment campaigns before she was given the marketing co-president title even though Tim Palen has always performed that role. Roberts, who recently had a baby, married a New Yorker and left LA to be with him. Her departure was not unexpected because the studio wants the position based here. Lionsgate doesn’t need to make its next move in this arena until March-April, an insider tells me, so will “use the moment” to decide whether to bring in someone “super senior”. As for Roberts, I’ve always liked her and I wish her well. Rubenstein PR has been handling Lionsgate’s flackery in her absence.
