Ms Bushell joined BT in 2014, developing its European football coverage, and launching 4k UHD services.
Delia Bushell said “This was a difficult decision as I am incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved over the past few years. But with the successful renewal of our UEFA Champions and Europa League rights and the launch of our new, improved BT TV YouView service, I can now confidently hand over the baton to the excellent team around me. I look forward to watching BT Sport and TV continue to lead the market on innovation, creativity & commercial ingenuity.”
The former Sky Italia executive will remain with BT until the start of June to begin a handover of responsibilities to her successor.
John Petter, CEO of BT Consumer, said “Delia leaves with our very best wishes for the future, having made a major contribution to the development of both BT TV and BT Sport. She leaves behind a strong team that she developed during her time here. We will announce in due course our succession plan for the BT TV and BT Sport businesses.”
It’s anticipated Ms Bushell will reveal her next move in the coming weeks.
