Former Democratic Rep. Harold Ford Jr. has emerged as the early front-runner among studios to succeed Hollywood’s top lobbyist Dan Glickman, who has made it official that he will depart as MPAA chairman and CEO when his contract expires in 10 months.

With Glickman’s contract expiring Sept. 1, he informed the MPAA board of his decision Monday after an interview with Politico published late Sunday.
