Morales Leaving Telemundo Stations
Telemundo station-group president Ibra Morales is leaving the company as of May 30. Morales’ contract is coming to an end and will not be renewed.
“Under the consolidated model established over a year ago, Telemundo will take the opportunity to review the station-group organization and architecture,” the broadcaster said in a statement. “As the business continues to rapidly change, the station group will continue to adjust and most likely evolve into a regional model.”
Telemundo president Don Browne will assume Morales’ duties until the group is reorganized.
Morales’ departure was previously reported on the blog Media Moves.
“Ibra has done a great job and his passion and dedication to Telemundo is second to none,” Telemundo said.
