Yahoo! Hires Lloyd Braun

It was just announced that my employer has hired Lloyd Braun, previously head of programming at ABC:

Lloyd Braun, who was behind shows such as “The Sopranos” on HBO and “Lost” on ABC, will try to convince movie, TV and music companies to distribute more content exclusively on Yahoo, company officials said Monday. (Yahoo! News)

Overall this should be a Good Thing as Yahoo becomes more and more media-focused, but isn’t this the studio head that turned down Seinfeld in the early days? (Thus causing one of the more memorable characters to be named after him.) Serenity Now!
