BBC Poised To Name Its Next Director GeneralDeadline
The BBC is on the brink of unveiling its next director general after the British broadcaster wrapped-up interviews for the top job, according to industry insiders.
BBC Studios CEO Tim Davie has been widely seen as the frontrunner throughout the four-month race to replace Hall, and his name kept coming up in conversations last night.
Others shortlisted include BBC director of content Charlotte Moore, who could well spring a surprise and land the job, as well as Amazon’s UK chief Doug Gurr and former Dow Jones CEO Will Lewis.
Hall is stepping down after seven years as BBC director general. He announced his decision to leave in January.
