March 15, 2013 |  8:34 am

AEG announced the abrupt departure of chief executive Tim Leiweke on Thursday.

Leiweke, considered the driving force behind the company's success with the LA Live complex and vital to bringing an NFL franchise back to Los Angeles, has not discussed his plans.

At 9 a.m. reporter David Zahniser will talk with us about Leiweke's departure and what it means for AEG and Los Angeles.

Leiweke was known for crossing political boundaries in his lobbying efforts and bringing a flair of entertainment into City Hall to bolster his position.

Observers said it's unclear how his exit will affect building a stadium downtown.
