+ + + BBC's Craig Oliver Replaces Coulson + + +

He is the 41 year old controller of BBC Global News.  A TV guy, as Guido recommended a week ago…

UPDATE : Lucy Manning points out Oliver has worked for ITV, Channel 4, 5 and the BBC. Up yours Rupert.

UPDATE :

Dear Colleagues,

As you will have seen from Peter’s email, I have decided to take the role of Government Director of Communications. It involves working in Number 10, co-ordinating the message for the Coalition Government. I’m sad to be leaving the BBC after a fascinating few years. It’s been a privilege to edit some of its key output, from BBC News at Six and Ten, to last year’s General Election. More recently I have enjoyed working at Global News. The commitment, passion and expertise in the World Service, World News and bbc.com/news has been truly inspiring. I wish everyone the best, particularly the World Service after the difficult announcements last week. I was approached about the role over the weekend, the first time I had been considered for it, and came to the conclusion that it will be an exciting and challenging opportunity.

I hope we won’t be strangers, though I am closing this chapter in my career.

Best wishes,

Craig
(Former Controller, Global News (English))

Quote of the Day

Former public schoolboy Chuka Umunna told the  ‘Exit From Brexit Dinner’…

“Remainians, Remoaners, I don’t care what the label is, I’m proud. It’s fashionable to label everyone in this room as the liberal metropolitan elite . . . This caricature is promoted by a bunch of former public schoolboys!”
