The online arm of PBL Media is now in turmoil, according to the Australian, after the shock departure of its chief executive, Tony Faure.
This comes after many high profile members exits from the portal, a joint venture between Microsoft and PBL, with its commercial director Jason Scott and marketing director Tony Thomas leaving the comapny.
The chairman of ninemsn has said that Faure made a significant contribution to the company.
In a statement, he has said that he was "not the right person to take the business to the next level." He will leave on the end of August to ensure a smooth transition for his successor.
