Mediaweek reports that WIN Television General Manager David Butorac, has parted company with the business after what is believed to have been a disagreement with company owner Bruce Gordon.
Staff were said to be informed of his departure in an internal memo late yesterday.
Butorac has been in the position for about eighteen months. Prior to joining WIN he held positions with Star Group in Hong Kong, Astro All Asia Networks in Malaysia, BSkyB in London and was Operations Director for the launch of Foxtel in 1995.
One former colleague this morning told Mediaweek it was a real shame he has gone, adding “he was the best thing that ever happened to WIN.”
WIN Television told TV Tonight it had no comment on the matter.
