Chutes & Ladders: Burke's exit blurs BT Vision

BT Entertainment CEO Andrew Burke, who was overseeing the company's move into television later this year, has quit "to pursue other interests." Burke, who was named when BT's content division was established in 2004, is leaving at the end of April and will not be replaced. The lead responsibility for BT Vision will remain with former Universal executive Dan Marks, who is CEO of TV services at BT Retail, with the support of Lib Charlesworth, the former general manager of Freeview, who was poached to become BT Vision marketing director.
