The Jobs Of Sky TV's Top Four Sports Execs Are Set To Be Restructured

A "high-level personnel shake-up is underway in Sky TV's sports department," according to Kathryn Powley of the NEW ZEALAND HERALD. The company's four top execs sports producers, Martin Crowe, Tui McKendrick, Andrew Fyfe and James Cameron, "were called into meetings on Friday where they were told about a proposal to restructure their jobs." Sky CEO John Fellett confirmed that the pay-TV provider suffered a NZ$15M ($12.4M) loss over its Olympics coverage, "but would not discuss the restructuring." Fellett said, "Sadly the NZ$15 million loss, you can put at my decision-making abilities. I'm the one that decided to go ahead and do the Olympics, not anybody else in the organisation" (NEW ZEALAND HERALD, 9/23).
