John Cassaday to step down as CEO of Corus in March

Corus Entertainment Inc. president and chief executive John Cassaday is retiring from the company next spring after 15 years at the helm, to be succeeded by current chief operating officer Doug Murphy, the Globe and Mail reports.
Cassaday’s departure on March 30 will mark his 25th anniversary in broadcasting, but not the end of his career. “I still have a lot of energy and enthusiasm,” the 61-year-old executive said , pledging to look for new challenges to occupy him for the next “five to seven years.”
Cassaday succeeded Murray Chercover as president of CTV and was ousted when CFTO took over the network. He took CTV from a cooperative to a corporation.
