Rai’s general manager is set to leave after the Italian pubcaster’s board rejected his plans for reform.
Antonio Campo Dall’Orto was appointed in 2015 but tendered his resignation on Friday after a revamp of the pubcaster’s news operation was dismissed by the Rai board.

He will formally leave his position within two weeks and a replacement is set to be named in the coming weeks.

Dall’Orto had restructured the Italian broadcaster’s operations during his tenure, including creating a new division dedicated to children, plus expanding into digital radio services.

Changes to Rai’s children’s offering saw its channel programming, content commissioning and production operations merged into one division for first time.

Dall’Orto, a former Viacom International Media Networks exec, had also been expanding Rai’s operations abroad, including linking up with Franco-German cultural network Arte on coproductions.
