Douglas gets BBC promotion

BBC Radio 2 and 6 Music Controller Lesley Douglas has been appointed as Controller for BBC Popular Music in addition to her current duties. She will work more closely with Radio 1's Andy Parfitt and BBC Prom's Roger Wright to develop plans to improve the BBC's offering to Britain's teens.

Lesley's expanded remit includes responsibility for co-ordinating the full range of popular music output that is being produced across the various BBC platforms. She says: "The BBC has an ongoing commitment to supporting a breadth of popular music programming.

"We need to ensure that we stay ahead of the game, capitalising on creative opportunities and working even more closely with the music community as a whole to leverage the full strength of the BBC."

Jenny Abramsky, Director BBC Audio and Music, says: "Lesley is doing a superb job at Radio 2 and 6 Music and I'm delighted that she will be taking on this role. Our aspiration is to gain greater impact for the BBC's investment in popular music across our output. I also want the post to be a central point for external contacts thereby simplifying communications with the BBC."

Lesley was appointed Controller of Radio 2 in October 2003.
