Cartoon Network president Snyder exiting

Regular ShowCartoon Network president Stu Snyder is exiting the Turner Broadcasting System-owned kids channel after six years in his current role.

Snyder, who is president and COO of Turner’s animation division, will step down at the end of the month, according to the LA Times, which broke the news.

His departure comes after Time Warner CFO John Martin became CEO and chaiman of Turner, with David Levy named president after a promotion from head of sales and distribution.

The LA Times quoted an unnamed source who claimed tensions between Snyder and Levy had lead to the former’s departure.

Snyder’s division include Regular Show (pictured) cable channel Cartoon Network, older programming block Adult Swim and Boomerang.

“It is with mixed emotions that I share with you the news that I will be leaving the company at the end of the month,” Snyder said in a staff memo.

“I have had the privilege of working and partnering with some of the most creative, talented and fun people in the business, who I will miss working with every day.”
