9Live's Marcus Wolter leaves German channel

COLOGNE, Germany – The braindrain continues at troubled European broadcaster ProSiebenSat.1. Marcus Wolter, head of call-in channel 9Live has jumped ship to become the new managing director of production group Endemol Deutschland. Wolter had run 9Live since 2003.

ProSieben has been shuffling through its top executives as it struggles through a crisis brought on by massive debt, weak ad sales and a rock-bottom share price.

CEO Guillaume de Posch has already fallen on his sword and will step down at the end of the year.
