Mark Weldon resigns
The resignation of Mediaworks Chief Executive, Mark Weldon has just been announced this morning. It follows speculation earlier this week that Mr Weldon might step down, after Newshub newsreader and presenter, Hilary Barry announced last Friday that she was leaving. The television and radio network has farewelled a steady stream of staff during restructuring since Mr Weldon took the helm in August 2014, including long serving news chief Mark Jennings and broadcaster John Campbell. Nine to Noon's Media Commentator is Gavin Ellis.
