The top lobbyist for Hollywood's movie industry will leave his job next year. Angela Belden Martinez, spokeswoman for the Motion Picture Association of America, says chairman Dan Glickman will step down in September when his contract expires. She says Glickman will probably look for a public service job, perhaps pursuing his interests in hunger and nutrition issues.

The job representing movie studios is one of Washington's most coveted lobbying posts. Glickman earned more than $1.2 million in 2007, but has not been as visibile as his predecessor, the late Jack Valenti.

Glickman is a former Agriculture Department secretary and Democratic congressman from Kansas.
