Portnow announced he would step down as President of the Recording Academy on July 31, 2019 after his contract was up.

Deborah Dugan who replaced him but she came under fire and was terminated just days prior to the awards telecast. Employees complained that she too heavy handed in her management style. She in turn than accused an Academy lawyers of making sexual advances towards her.
