Executive replaces Borris Brandt

Marcus Wolter has ankled as managing director of ProSiebenSat.1’s channel 9Live for the top job at Endemol Germany.

He replaces Endemol’s outgoing managing director Borris Brandt.

Wolter, who will leave 9Live at the end of September after five years, is the fourth exec to abandon ProSiebenSat.1 in recent months. ProSiebenSat.1 has yet to appoint his successor.

Brandt’s exit had been expected following comments he made in an interview with the Financial Times Deutschland criticizing the hard-line, profit-oriented strategy of investors in the TV industry.
