Roger Parry: I don't want Michael Grade's job at ITV


Former Johnston Press chairman Roger Parry has ruled himself out of the race to become the next chief executive of ITV.

Bookmaker Paddy Power had put odds of 40-1 on Parry replacing Michael Grade when he steps down as executive chairman later this year to become non-executive.

Parry, who now chairs the Local Media Alliance, told the Independent on Sunday: “I’m not interested in being chief executive of ITV and I have not been approached.”

No word yet on whether Ant and Dec, at 500-1, are in the running.
