BBC News – George Entwistle named next BBC director general

Congratulations to George Entwistle, named as the new Director General of the BBC.

I’ve read this news in several places online, and I’ve even looked up his Wikipedia entry.

He’s been the producer and editor on several TV shows. He’s been the Head of TV Current Affairs, he was the Acting Controller of BBC Four for a while and he became Director of BBC Vision, that is, of TV, not radio.

Radio doesn’t appear in his CV at all as far as I can see. So that bodes well for us radio fans, then. We can hope that, at the very least, he is capable of tuning into the correct radio station, unlike his predecessor, Mark Thompson.

So, yes, Congratulations – but we’ll be watching you, George.
