He stayed just two months. TF1 General Director in charge of content Axel Duroux has resigned from his post at TF1, where he arrived on September 15.

Duroux diverged strategically with CEO Nonce Paolini, particularly on the policy to engage at TF1 Group. When named in the post in mid-June, the group suffered from continuing decreasing ratings and falling ad revenues. Since the end of August, the situation has improved and Axel Duroux’s position was unclear.

Before joining TF1, Axel Duroux was former CEO of RTL in France.
