    David C. Glasser, Chief Operating Officer and President for The Weinstein Company (TWC), speaks at the American Film Market Finance Conference I: The 360 View at the Fairmont Hotel on Friday, Nov. 4, 2016, in Santa Monica, California.

    The movie studio co-founded by Harvey Weinstein has fired its president, whose continued presence at the company was a source of controversy.

    The Weinstein Co. board said Friday it voted unanimously to dismiss David Glasser. A statement announcing the firing was released to the Los Angeles Times and the New York Times.
