ITV, Britain's biggest free-to-air commercial broadcaster, said its Chief Executive Adam Crozier was stepping down after seven years in the role.

The company said Finance Director Ian Griffiths would lead the executive team until it appoints a successor, helped by chairman Peter Bazalgette, who will become executive chairman during that time.

Crozier, who has grown ITV's production operations to reduce its reliance on advertising during his time in charge, will leave on June 30, the broadcaster said on Wednesday.
