Post-Richard Stursberg, it’s onwards and upwards for senior CBC executives.

First Kirstine Stewart shifted from general manager of CBC Television to become executive vice president of English services on an interim basis.

Now close behind, Christine Wilson, executive director for CBC network programming, has become acting general manager while the public broadcaster looks inside and outside the corporation for Stursberg’s permanent replacement.

Through the transition, Stewart will maintain her current working relationship with CBC programming execs and indie producers.

Stursberg promoted Wilson in 2006 to deputy program director around the time he recruited Stewart to oversee the selection and scheduling of CBC English-language TV programming.
