One of the top executives at Disney-ABC Television Group is headed out. Deadline reports that veteran TV executive Bruce Rosenblum, president of Business Operations, will exit his post at the end of this month.
Rosenblum, formerly with Warner Bros. Television Group and Legendary, exits after just a year and a half on the job, Nellie Andreeva reports in the Deadline story. Rosenblum will also vacate his seat on the Hulu board.
“I hear Rosenblum’s exit comes with a year and a half left on his contract and a brief non-compete period,” Andreeva reports. “It stems from the major reorganization The Walt Disney Co. announced in March as the company prepares to launch direct-to-consumer services and seeks to grow internationally. It involved the creation of a new Direct-to-Consumer & International division, consolidating business operational areas across the company under one unit run by Kevin Mayer.”
