Overall revenues at ITV were Â£1.9bn (2bn) compared with Â£2bn a year earlier. The broadcaster reported an adjusted profit of Â£108m, a 4% decrease year-on-year.
Interim CEO John Creswell was bullish. He said: ÂWe won back share of the TV advertising market, grew our audiences in peak time and online, and increased our international production presence. We took out costs of Â£169m, substantially reduced our headcount and lowered net debt by over Â£100m.Â Adam Crozier will take over as CEO next month.
