Richard Stursberg leaves CBC

No reason given for departure of head of English language services

The head of CBC’s English language services, Richard Stursberg, is leaving the Mother Corp. after six years on the job. Stursberg’s departure is effective Friday. In a statement to employees, CBC president Hubert Lacroix praised Stursberg’s no-holds-barred approach to changing the broadcaster. “”He challenged every premise, attacked conventional wisdom, and uprooted whole parts of the internal culture,” Lacroix said. “Six years later, the institution is better off than it was. I want to acknowledge his success in turning CBC Television around and thank him for his contribution.”
