Former EMI boss Roger Faxon has been appointed as a Non-Executive Director of ITV, which will come in useful expertise wise when the TV firm is bought up by some clueless private equity twonks, subsequently gets repossessed by a bank, and is then split into its programme and network divisions for sale to Sky and Channel 5, ensuring the destruction of a once great British institution. Good times.

Said ITV Chairman Archie Norman: “Roger will bring to the board unmatchable experience of the adaptation of the media and rights management business to the digital world. His appointment reflects our commitment to the Transformation Plan embarked on two years ago”.

Faxon added: “I look forward to contributing to the company’s plans to revitalise this exciting British business. I am delighted to be joining ITV and working with Archie Norman and [chief executive] Adam Crozier”.
