Heather Conway, executive VP of CBC, is leaving her role at the public broadcaster to pursue other opportunities.
She will remain in the post until December 7. Conway is exiting after five years in charge of the corporation’s English-language TV, radio and digital services.
“Heather has been instrumental in spearheading CBC’s digital transformation on all of our platforms and across all genres, helping us meet our goal of doubling our digital reach, two years ahead of schedule,” said Catherine Tait, president and CEO of CBC/Radio-Canada. “She has been passionate about reflecting Canadian diversity in our content, ensuring that it is more distinctly and identifiably Canadian.
Conway added: “It has been a privilege to serve Canadians and Canadian creators and to lead the incredible public broadcasters who work at CBC. The experience and the CBC will be with me always, as the CBC always has been and should always be for all of us.”
Tait continued: “I am thinking about next steps in terms of how I will go about filling this very important position. In the meantime, I look forward to continuing to work with Heather and her team over the next month to ensure a smooth transition.”
