Guardian Media Group CEO McCall Leaving To Run easyJet

On the face of it, the only thing news publishing and aviation have in common is massive recent disruption – nevertheless, Guardian Media Group CEO Carolyn McCall is flying off to become chief executive of European budget airline easyJet, Sky News’ City editor and FT correspondents report.

GMG declined to comment to paidContent:UK. We understand London-listed easyJet will announce the move to the market Wednesday morning. There’s no word yet of a replacement – McCall is not expected to leave immediately.
