Shine TV Ups New Leadership Team

Shine TV announced today it was upping Tanya Shaw and Tim Whitwell from creative director and head of programming to managing director and creative director respectively. The moves come in the wake of current managing director Kelly Webb-Lamb to leave the company at the end of the year.

Shaw was previously commissioning editor of factual features and formats at the BBC. She joined Shine in 2014. Whitwell, a double BAFTA winner, joined Shine in 2012 from Optomen, where he was editor of documentaries and features.

The Shine TV slate includes Channel 4 hit Hunted and The Island With Bear Grylls. Both Shaw and Whitwell will take up their new positions in the new year.
