Media: ITV to lay off tenth of online team

ITV is cutting ten per cent of its 180-strong online staff as part of a digital restructure at the company.

An ITV spokesperson said: 'This restructure will see the realignment of our teams around four key product areas to deliver the next stage of ITV's transformation plan.'

The key areas are: ITV Player, led by James Micklethwait; programme support, led by Richard Williams; commerce and ventures, led by William Van Rest, and news and sport, led by Julian March.

Its single-product and delivery team, led by Andrew Levy, will then provide design, development and product management support across these four product areas.

In July, ITV announced it would be launching a micropayments system in January next year for some of its content on ITV Player.
