The Week: People News - ITV board members depart

Two non-executive directors have agreed to step down from the ITV board.

The departures of Heather Killen and Agnes Touraine, who both joined the board in 2007, follow that of Sir George Russell, the ITV deputy chairman. Archie Norman, the new chairman who was appointed in November, has made it known that he wants to see the broadcaster's 12-member board significantly reduced.
