Channel 10 CEO to Resign Today

Nir Lampert, Channel 10's CEO, is expected to announce this morning that he is resigning from his position.

Lampert recently received offers for several positions, including a senior role at Bezeq and he confirmed that he would likely accept one of the offers.

Lampert has led the channel since it entered bankruptcy protection. However, the company still suffers from huge losses estimated at about $2 million per month. A few months ago, the former CEO of Channel 10's news company, Ram Landis, sought to replace Lampert, but the channel's shareholders expressed their confidence in Lampert and elected to keep him on the job.

Several names have arisen as possible candidates for the position: satellite company Yes's deputy CEO for marketing and content Yona Wiesenthal, Telad CEO Ilan Tuvyahu, and Landis. The owners of Channel 10 are Ron Lauder, Merhav head Yosef Maiman, and movie producer Arnon Milchan.
