Joanna Webb Exits Bell Media

The veteran TV programmer has left the house after jumping from rival Corus Entertainment in October 2010 to join the top-rated Canadian network.

TORONTO – Joanna Webb has exited Canadian broadcaster Bell Media less than a year after joining as senior vp of programming.

Webb left rival Corus Entertainment in October 2010 to join then CTVglobemedia, just before the broadcaster was acquired by phone giant BCE and rebranded as Bell Media.

"Please join me in thanking Joanna for her contributions, and wishing her the very best in the future,” Rick Brace, president of specialty channels and CTV production, said Monday in an internal memo released to CTV staff in Toronto.

Webb’s departure comes as Brace gets set to unveil next week a BCE-era shuffle of his programming team for Canadian cable channels.
