Levy set to leave as Turner president

David Levy is set to leave his position as president of media company Turner, according to multiple reports.

Levy has helped negotiate a number of key rights deals for Turner, a division of WarnerMedia, including long-term agreements with the NBA basketball league and Major League Baseball.

Turner holds rights for the NBA until 2025, while its deal for MLB runs until 2021.

Levy also played a key role in Turner’s agreement with the CBS network to broadcast the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s Division 1 men’s basketball championship, also known as March Madness.

The news of Levy’s departure was first reported by The Information, citing two people familiar with the situation. HBO chief executive Richard Plepler is also set to leave WarnerMedia as part of the reshuffle.
