MEXICO CITY, Sept 19 (Reuters) - Mexican tycoon German Larrea has resigned from the board of broadcaster Televisa over a potential conflict of interest arising from his interest in bidding in an upcoming tender for new television networks, Televisa said in a statement on Friday.

Larrea, one of Mexico's richest men who controls mining and infrastructure giant Grupo Mexico, is aiming to take part in the bidding process for television networks the government is creating, Televisa said.
