Former Senior TV Exec Dawn Airey Quits Yahoo European Role

LONDON — Dawn Airey, the former U.K. television executive, has left Yahoo!, where she headed up its European operations, after only two years in the job.

She has been replaced as senior VP for Europe, the Middle East and Africa by Nick Hugh, previously general manager of advertising for the region.

A Yahoo! spokesman said: “We are incredibly grateful to Dawn for her dedication and contributions to Yahoo! over the past two years, and for her leadership of this extremely important region.”

Airey is the former CEO of U.K. free-to-air network Channel 5, and a one-time senior executive at pay TV operator Sky and U.K. commercial TV network ITV. At present, she is advising the U.K. government as it negotiates a new agreement with the BBC, which will define its purpose and the scope of its operations.
