Mosey Upped To Editorial Director At BBC

The BBC has appointed Roger Mosey as editorial director. He’ll oversee the BBC’s editorial standards and handle major editorial issues as they arise in the new role that’s being created following a series of scandals that have hit the pubcaster in the past several months. Said BBC director general Tony Hall, “It is crucial that the BBC dedicates the right amount of time, skill and expertise to addressing the myriad of editorial challenges that we face across the BBC’s output.” Mosey was instrumental in the BBC’s coverage of the London Olympics last year and also will be charged with overseeing the planning of significant pan-BBC events.
