Radio-Canada ombudsman leaving post

My Radio-Canada counterpart, Julie Miville-Dechene, has decided to leave her post July 31 to pursue a role outside of media.

The Radio-Canada story on her departure is here.

Julie has been the Ombudsman for Radio-Canada for four years. CBC President Hubert T. Lacroix praised her passion and effort to modernize the office and bring it greater visibility. He particularly noted the public's confidence in the office during her term.

Julie has been with Radio-Canada for more than 25 years, including roles as a reporter and correspondent in Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and Washington.

An internal and external search is under way for her successor.
