RadioShack chief quits post

The top executive of US electronics giant RadioShack has resigned from his post, amid controversy surrounding the accuracy of his resumé, an Associated Press report said.


The report said the company's board has accepted the resignation of RadioShack CEO David J. Edmondson and promoted Claire Babrowski, erstwhile EVP and CEO, to acting CEO.


The report said Edmondson last week acknowledged resumé errors that included claims of earning two college degrees for which the school he attended had no records.


After Edmondson acknowledged the errors, the board said it would hire an outside firm to investigate, the report said.
