There is no immediate word about his successor.
John Stankey, WarnerMedia's CEO, said Monday that "it is in the best interest of WarnerMedia, Warner Bros., our employees and our partners that Kevin resigned as Chairman and CEO of Warner Bros. Kevin has made a major contribution to the studio & # 39; s success over the past 25 years, and for that we thank him. Kevin acknowledges that his mistakes do not match the company's expectations of leadership and may affect the company's ability to move forward. "
After the THR story appeared, Tsujihara apologized for "mistakes in my personal life."
His lawyer said he "did not play a direct role in hiring this actress."
Regarding the research, WarnerMedia says it is still ongoing. The company "continues to work with an external law firm to complete its investigation with the cooperation of Mr. Tsujihara," the press release said Monday.
Tsujihara sent a memo to colleagues about his exit on Monday.
"I love this company and the people who make it great." I have been honored to lead this organization and to work together with all of his talented employees from the past 25 years. "Together we have built this studio into an undisputed leader in the industry," he said. "However, it has become clear that my continued leadership could be a distraction and an obstacle to the company's continued success." The hard work of everyone within our organization is truly admirable, and I will not distract the media attention on my past from all the great work that the team is doing. "
In a separate internal memo, Stankey said that Tsujihara & # 39; s exit followed "discussions over the past week".
Stankey told the studio staff: "You have my commitment to work diligently and quickly to minimize any disruption to the studio's daily activities as a result of this leadership transition. I will share an interim leadership structure with all of you tomorrow. "
