According to a statement, her resignation was effective from 28 January.
Naspers recently announced Scholtemeyer would leave the position of CEO of Media24 Magazines to become CEO of M-Net from 1 March.
Scholtemeyer said at the time it would be “highly unlikely” to represent the print industry (as chair of MPASA) while working in television. She had to, however, still discuss the issue with the MPASA board.
According to MPASA, Associated Magazines’ Julia Raphaely will act as chairperson until the next board meeting on 12 February.
Raphaely confirmed, in response to an enquiry from TheMediaOnline, that Scholtemeyer’s resignation was linked to her move to television.
She said it would be confirmed after the next board meeting if Scholtemeyer’s successor would continue to represent Media24 on the board.
TheMediaOnline previously reported John Relihan, publisher of Media24’s family magazines, will take Scholtemeyer’s place as CEO of Media24 Magazines.
