ITV factual commissioner Andrew O’Connell has left the UK broadcaster after two years.
The former Channel 5 exec joined ITV in 2014 on a contract basis and became full-time in 2015 following commissioner Katy Thorogood’s departure.
“After two years in ITV’s factual team, I have decided that this period of creative change offers me the opportunity to move on to new adventures,” O’Connell said in a statement.
O’Connell’s commissioning credits include Sugar Free Farm, Life at The Extreme, Rookies and When Ant and Dec Met The Prince: 40 Years of the Prince’s Trust.“
His exit follows the departures of director of factual Richard Klein and entertainment commissioner Claire Zolkwer earlier this year.
There have been a series of changes to the commissioning teams at ITV following the appointment of Kevin Lygo as director of television.
