BusinessDesk's Pattrick Smellie: Simon Power might not have quit TVNZ due to the scrapped merger

TVNZ's CEO Simon Power is stepping down after 15 months in the role.

He will leave the company on June 30th, and says it's "been a privilege" to lead the company while it worked through the now-scrapped TVNZ/RNZ merger.

BusinessDesk managing editor Pattrick Smellie suspects it wasn't the dumped merger that pushed Simon Power to quit.

Pattrick Smellie says several TVNZ board members have just been reappointed beyond March 31 and Willie Jackson may want to try implement aspects of the merger, leading to Simon Power's resignation.
