The CEO of the Turkish station Habertürk TV has handed in his resignation.

According to Zaman, Erhan Çelik, who had been in the post since January 1 last year, announced his departure on Twitter.

In consecutive posts, he wrote: “I have just submitted my resignation to the Ciner Media Group, where I worked as the chief executive of Habertürk TV. I am grateful to [my] executives and colleagues, who continued to support me during my tenure.”

Although Celik gave no reasons for his resignation, one industry source cites Ciner Media Group’s censorship of news stories about alleged corruption scandal implicating former ministers and the upcoming return of another executive – Mehmet Fatih Saraç – to the group.
