Network Ten has announced the resignation of Chief Programming Officer David Mott.
“David has had an extraordinary career at Ten over the past 16 years,” said Network Ten Chief Executive, James Warburton. “He has been a fantastic asset for the network and we are sorry to see him go. David’s legacy at Ten includes landmark television programmes such as MasterChef, Australian Idol, Rove Live, The Biggest Loser, Thank God You’re Here, The Project and Big Brother”.
Mott said: “I am proud of the bold programming decisions we have made at Ten over that time, because without risk there is less chance of success. In a job where you live and die by the numbers, perhaps I’ve been luckier than most. It’s been a great ride, and I’ve loved every second of it. I leave behind a focused and committed creative team and I wish them all the best for the future.”
Beverley McGarvey continues as Network Ten’s Network Head of Programming and assumes Mott’s responsibilities on an acting basis.
