CTV sets Crull as next prexy

Bell exec to take over from Fecan

Longtime Bell exec Kevin Crull will take over from Ivan Fecan as the topper of CTVglobemedia once the telco completes its $3.1 billion acquisition of the broadcast group.

The Toronto-based media company announced Wednesday that Crull will join as chief operating officer on Jan. 1, and become prexy when Fecan steps down.

Bell parent company BCE bought CTV, Canada’s leading TV network, in September to feed its content to Bell’s various media platforms, including mobile phones, satellite TV and the Internet.

That strategy is underlined with the appointment of Crull as Fecan’s successor.

Crull is currently prexy of Bell’s residential services, which includes Bell Internet, Bell Satellite TV, the Sympatico online service and Bell’s home phone division.

“We have a game-changing opportunity to deliver media properties across multiple platforms as technology and viewer appetites evolve,” Crull said.

The deal, which has to receive approval from federal broadcast regulator the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission and the Competition Bureau, is expected to close in mid-2011, when Fecan has indicated he will retire.
