Weiss ankling Sweden’s TV4

AMSTERDAM — Lars Weiss, one of the founding members of national commercial channel TV4 Sweden, is ankling his position as head of programs at year-end.

Weiss left his job as head of news for Swedish Television (SVT) some eight years ago to help kick off TV4, the country’s first commercial terrestrial channel. He helped set up the channel’s first news department, then moved over to become head of programs.

“I’m good at starting things up, but TV4 is now an extremely strong channel,” said Weiss, who told Daily Variety he intended “to work on some personal writing projects” and remain as an on-call consultant to TV4 on international television matters for the short term.

No successor for Weiss has yet been announced.
