Octávio Ribeiro is leaving Cofina (act) – Meios & Publicidade

Octávio Ribeiro, editorial director of Cofina since 2017 and director of Correio da Manhã and CMTV, will leave Cofina. The news was advanced by Eco and confirmed minutes later by the group led by Paulo Fernandes.

Carlos Rodrigues, executive director, will be the new director of CM and CMTV.

With the departure of the founder of CMTV, Cofina will “streamline its organizational structure”, extinguishing the editorial general management, which had Armando Esteves Pereira and Alfredo Leite as assistants.

“Given the context that the Media are going through, Cofina will have editorial managers for brands, television and Correio da Manhã on the one hand, and the other titles on the other. In the company’s view, this reorganization optimizes its television segment, having added the main title of the group, and on the other hand reinforces the identity of the other media segments, without, however, failing to obtain group synergies”, says the group in communicated.

“Octávio Ribeiro has been over the years a professional who has always made a difference, with boldness, commitment and focused on the development of an independent media group, with a clear positioning in favor of the reader and viewer, to whom we will always be. grateful,” says Paulo Fernandes, CEO of Cofina SGPS.

“Cofina was for me, from the beginning, a house of freedom and responsibility. During all these years I have been consolidating the idea that it is the best place to be a journalist in Portugal, without constraints, without fears, with boldness and willingness to contribute to a better Portugal every day. I consider, at the end of these years, to have given the best I could. But life is made up of stages, and I leave with the feeling that Cofina’s teams will continue to be committed, on a daily basis, to fulfilling their mission even better”, adds Octávio Ribeiro, who will be dedicated to
“personal projects outside the media sector”.

Carlos Rodrigues, until now executive director of CM and CMTV, joined Cofina in 2012. Before that, he was deputy information director at SIC. He also passed through RTP and TVI.
