Entwistle appointed as new BBC DG

Editor RapidTVNews | 04-07-2012

In somewhat of a surprise move given the high profiles of the proposed alternatives, George Entwistle was today named as the new director general of the BBC.

Currently director of BBC Vision, Entwistle will step into the shoes of Mark Thompson, the longest serving DG since the 1970s, who is expected to stand down after the completion of the BBCs coverage of the 2012 London Olympics and Paralympics.
Entwistle takes over the corporation at a key moment in its history, as it still comes to terms with the licence fee settlement imposed by the UK Government which has led to huge cutbacks in budgets and additional responsibilities for the corporation.
Indeed, the first priority for Entwistle will be to prepare the BBC for the review of its Royal Charter. The existing Charter expires in 2016 and will set out how the BBC is funded, managed and what its basic aims and ambitions should be.


Regards,
