EasyJet's McCall top candidate for ITV chief

Dame Carolyn McCall, the chief executive of easyJet, is reported to be leading the pack to replace ITV boss Adam Crozier.

The Guardian reported that McCall is understood to have interviewed for the role and is the top candidate.

Crozier left the chief executive post after seven years at the end of June.

Ian Griffiths has been leading the executive team since then in a new combined role of chief operating officer and group finance director.

An ITV spokeswoman would not comment directly on whether McCall had been interviewed but said: "The board has a well-developed succession plan in place and is in the process of finding a successor."
