JumpTV boss Nada Usina jumps ship

Webcaster in process of merging with NeuLion

TORONTO -- Canadian webcaster JumpTV said that its president, Nada Usina, has left the company as it completes a planned merger with U.S. online TV service NeuLion.

Toronto-based JumpTV said that Usina's responsibilities will be taken over by executive chairman G. Scott Paterson.

"We wish her well in her future endeavors," Paterson said.

JumpTV rebuffed a takeover bid from MySpace founder Brad Greenspan in June before it unveiled plans to merge with NeuLion on Oct. 1, subject to shareholder and regulatory approvals.
