Granada names Morrison chief exec

LONDON – Steve Morrison has been elevated to chief executive of Granada Media Group, following the sudden exit of Duncan Lewis.

Lewis departed after only a few months in the job because of “an incompatibility of approaches” between himself and his bosses at Granada Group.

Morrison was previously chief operating officer of Granada Media Group, which spans the company’s broadcasting and production activities. These include two large regional ITV stations, Granada TV and LWT, the satcaster Granada Sky Broadcasting and the program-making powerhouse Granada Intl. Prods.

Morrison is best-known to the Hollywood community as exec producer of Granada’s Oscar-winning movie “My Left Foot.” He was a leading force behind the establishment of Granada Film, but this is just one part of his long career at Granada both as a producer and as a broadcasting manager.

Granada Group chief exec Charles Allen commented, “Steve Morrison has played a key role in delivering the outstanding results which our television division has achieved over the last four years. During Steve’s tenure as managing director, both Granada TV and LWT have dramatically improved their profitability whilst enhancing their reputation for creative excellence.”
