Jim Liberatore, president of Speed Channel, will leave the network when his contract expires at the end of June, a spokesperson for Fox Cable Networks Group said Monday.

Fox and Mr. Liberatore have “philosophical differences about the network,” the spokesperson said.

No successor has been named. Mr. Liberatore has been involved in building the network through Fox’s association with NASCAR. The channel has 68 million subscribers.
