Marc Juris (pictured) is stepping down as exec VP and chief operating officer of truTV, after spending nearly a decade with the U.S. cable network.

It is unclear at present whether Juris, who oversaw the net’s transformation from its CourtTV branding,┬áhas a new job, and truTV is not commenting on his departure.

However, in a memo sent to staff yesterday (May 2), Turner Entertainment Networks president Steve Koonin told employees he was “evaluating truTV’s current and future leadership needs” as he sought a replacement.

“Today the company is announcing the departure of our colleague Marc Juris,” Koonin wrote. “As executive vice president, Marc has provided valuable leadership, especially through the network’s rebranding and subsequent audience growth.

“I have already begun the process of evaluating truTV’s current and future leadership needs so that we can choose the right executive to lead the network. We are extremely grateful to Marc for his many contributions to our business, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”

The news follows truTV’s unveiling of its upcoming slate, which featured three greenlit series, seven pilots and two renewals.
