Henry Schleiff is out as CEO of Court TV as Time Warner assumes from Liberty
Media the 50 percent of the cable network that it doesn't already own.
Broadcasting and Cable magazine said that Schleiff had decided to step
down -- he reportedly will retain the title of chairman of Court TV but not
that of CEO -- because he "didn't see any particular fit" within the new
structure, in which the channel is to become part of Time Warner's Turner
Broadcasting unit. There had been numerous rumors recently that Schleiff would
take over as head of CNN Headline News channel, but those appeared to be shot
down earlier this week by a company spokesperson.
The BBC drama starring Aidan Turner returns to BBC One on September 4th.
