After two years, Rob Webster has stepped down as managing director of Sky Sports.
Webster has taken the decision for personal reasons and will be replaced by Jonathan Licht, Sky Sports’s deputy managing director. His resignation come after the recent renewal of Sky’s Premier League TV rights.
Insiders say the effect of the pandemic meant the job suddenly became very different from the one Webster had taken on in May 2019. At the height of the crisis Sky had no live sport to fill its channels and took the decision to allow customers to pause payments.
