Deadline Hollywood, reported July 26, 2019: John Ferriter Dies: Former WMA Board Member, Head Of Non-Scripted Television Was 59.
John Ferriter, the former powerhouse William Morris Agency EVP/Worldwide Head of Non-Scripted TV and the only WMA board member to vote against the merger with Endeavor, died Thursday, according to sources. He was 59. A former close associate of his shared the news with some of Ferriter’s former colleagues today. We are still trying to confirm cause of death and specific details.

Also a television producer and a singer whose bands The Tearaways and Stingray opened for bands including The Bangles, REM and Guns & Roses, Ferriter is probably best remembered for his career at WMA, where he spent nearly two decades and rose to the level of executive vice president. He also became a WMA board member, one who was very critical of the merger between WMA and Endeavor that left the latter smaller agency in control, and many of the braintrust of the colossus out, including WMA chief Jim Wiatt
