Sep 16, 2011  •  Post A Comment

In a surprise move, Disney Channels Worldwide President Carolina Lightcap is leaving her job after less than two years in the position, the Los Angeles Times’ Company Town blog reports.

Disney Channel veteran Gary Marsh, president of entertainment for Disney Channels Worldwide, will take over for her, the story says.

Lightcap is the second high-profile departure from Walt Disney Co. in recent days, with Andy Mooney abruptly resigning last week as chairman for Disney Consumer Products, the piece notes.

No reason was given for Lightcap’s resignation, but there were allegedly issues regarding her management style, the story says, citing sources close to the company.
