Ian McDonough Head Of Turner UK And Nordics To Leave The Company

In a statement released today (11/04/2017) from Turner, it has been announced that Ian McDonough, the Senior Vice President and Managing Director for Turner Northern Europe (UK and Nordics) will be leaving the company. Ian oversaw all of Turner’s UK and Scandinavian operations, which includes Cartoon Network, Boomerang, TCM, Cartoonito in the UK and TNT in Scandinavia. Ian took on the role of regional manager in 2014, back then, Turner’s UK operations were split off from the Southern Europe part of the business (France, Italy, Spain and Africa) and joined up with the company’s Scandinavian operations forming the new Northern Europe region.

In the last few months, there has been some changes, in February, Turner UK sold its general entertainment channel – TruTV (launched in 2014) to Sony Pictures Television so it can focus on its core children’s and classic movie TV channel brands, also recently, the company has made a investment in digital services including the acquisition of Bigballs Media, the world’s largest independent football media business.

In the meantime, Giorgio Stock, the president of Turner EMEA will be overseeing the Northern Europe part of the business until a new manager is hired.

Upon Ian’s notice of resignation, Turner released this statement:

“Ian McDonough has taken the decision to leave Turner. Ian has steered the Northern Europe business during a period of fast-paced change and leaves the Turner channels portfolio in great shape. We have a strong and experienced management team in place who will run the day to day operation reporting into Giorgio Stock, president EMEA, who will be directly overseeing the Northern Europe business while we find the right candidate to lead the region going forward.”

From The Turner UK Press Release: Sesame Street Introduces New Muppet In A Special Episode Launching Today On Cartoonito: The all-new Sesame Street episode “Meet Julia” will air today at 3:30pm on Cartoonito

Sesame Street’s special episode, “Meet Julia”, will air today in a landmark joint premiere across the globe. Viewers in the UK can catch “Meet Julia” at 3:30pm today on Cartoonito.

In “Meet Julia”, Big Bird is playing with Elmo and Abby’s new friend, Julia, when he notices that she does things a little differently.

Big Bird, Julia and the Sesame friends all then come together to play and sing, celebrating how everyone is special and amazing.

Welcoming Julia to the Street signals Sesame Workshop’s strong, continued commitment to the autism community and further supports a rich new phase of their autism initiative, Sesame Street and Autism: See Amazing in All Children.
