After 18 years at New Zealand broadcaster TV3, Mark Caulton has stepped down from his current role as director of programming to move to the UK in the New Year.

During his four-year tenure as programming director at the MediaWorks-owned net, Caulton drove TV3′s channel share through localized and international titles, including The X Factor New Zealand and game show Family Feud.

A search for his replacement is currently underway.

An indie broadcaster reaching 3.7 million homes, MediaWorks owns and operates such Kiwi television channels as TV3 and The Edge TV, as well as a raft of radio stations and digital media platforms.

“Mark has spent the best part of two decades at TV3 and has made a significant contribution during that time,” said TV3 CCO Andrew Szusterman in a statement. “His expertise in so many areas of the business will be truly missed. I can’t thank him enough for all he has done.”

“It’s been an absolute pleasure and a privilege being part of the programming team at TV3 over the last 18 years,” added Caulton. “There’s literally never been a dull moment, and I count myself very fortunate to have worked alongside so many talented people.”
