Prime Media Group Chairman John Hartigan has announced his departure from the regional broadcaster in the new year.
The former News Corp boss told The Australian he is looking forward to spending more time with family.
“I just want to have some ‘me’ time, interspersed with some work that will keep me out of trouble,” he said.
“I just want to enjoy my life and my friends. I’ve got a property in the Hunter Valley that I don’t get to often enough, and I just want to mix [making] a contribution, which I think I do, and the leisure that comes with being a senior citizen.”
Hartigan joined Prime Media Group in May 2014 having been chairman and chief executive of News Limited.
