"We can't IPO the business until we have a chief executive in place. It is unlikely one will have everything in place for the autumn." - Virgin Radio's chairman, Richard Huntingford, after its chief executive, Paul Jackson, quit for Capital Radio

"Male audiences are being bombarded with great entertainment, so we have taken steps to ensure this is a channel representative of their lives, with content they will want to watch." - Dee Forbes, the senior vice-president of Turner Broadcasting, on the launch of Nuts TV.
