Treves to continue as C4 chair

Channel looking to replace chief exec Jackson

LONDON — Vanni Treves has been reappointed chairman of Channel 4.

Treves has chaired the terrestrial since 1998 and the extension runs to the end of 2003.

The appointment, made by the ITC, the U.K.’s commercial TV watchdog, and approved by the British government, comes as C4 seeks a replacement for departing chief exec Michael Jackson, who is leaving at the end of the month to head up USA Entertainment Group.

Jackson said “continuity is important for any business, particularly so during an economic downturn” and praised Treves’ “robust support” for C4’s public service remit.

Treves is currently leading the process of finding a replacement for Jackson. Among the contenders are Endemol UK creative director Peter Bazalgette and Lord Waheed Alli, founder of production company Planet 24 and former head of Carlton Prods.
