With an illustrious career spanning more than three decades, one of international television’s most respected executives and a legend at TV 2 will say a fond farewell to the broadcaster on June 30th 2020.

Anette Romer will continue to head the department over the coming months while working together with Head of TV 2 PLAY and TV 2 ZULU´s Sune Roland who will assume responsibility for the department to ensure a smooth transition for her team (who will all continue in their respective roles and responsibilities) and their international partners.

Anette Romer said:

- Over the past decade I’ve been lucky to manage one of the best and most respected acquisitions teams in the industry.  I could not be happier with the solution that has been found with Sune Roland helming the team. With the highly increased focus on TV 2 PLAY and the strategic emphasis on strengthening our relationship with young viewers it makes a lot of sense gathering PLAY, ZULU and Acquisitions into one entity.

- It's been both an honour and a privilege to be part of TV 2’s Denmark journey from the very beginning, and leaving the broadcaster in such a strong position fills me with immense pride and respect for all my colleagues.

- The industry has transformed drastically over the past three decades and keeping ahead of the changing technology, viewing habits and trends has been a daily challenge and something I will continue to follow closely.

“A long and outstanding contribution”

Head of TV 2 PLAY and TV 2 ZULU, Sune Roland, added:

- With her +30 years with TV 2, Anette´s imprint and contribution to all of TV 2´s channels is undeniable and noteworthy.  Her long and outstanding contribution was recently crowned with ´The Otto Award´, an Honorary Award of the highest recognition from the Danish Television Industry. The respect Anette enjoys on both an international and domestic level is unparalleled.
