TVNZ CEO quits pubcaster post

AUCKLAND — In the past two months, five senior executives have quit Kiwi pubcaster TVNZ. Latest to leave is CEO Chris Anderson, who had been in the job two years.

His resignation was announced by TVNZ chairman Roseanne Meo, who praised his contribution.

Anderson said he had been approached by overseas companies and wanted to consider the opportunities.

Meo and new programming supremo Neil Roberts have restructured the management of TVNZ, emphasizing production and strategic planning to cope with increased competition from CanWest-owned TV3 and the U.S.-owned paybox Sky.

The web has now begun an international search for a new CEO.
