Tim Davie to replace Abramsky

Tim Davie has been appointed Director of BBC Audio & Music, replacing Jenny Abramsky, who is leaving the BBC after 39 years.

Tim is currently director of the BBC's Marketing, Communications and Audiences division and sits on the BBC executive board.

Director-General Mark Thompson welcomed the appointment. He said: "Radio is at the heart of the BBC's public service mission and millions of listeners rely on its quality, range and integrity every day.

"Tim's drive, knowledge and sheer love of the medium will ensure that BBC radio remains creatively strong and vibrant in the years to come. His insight into audiences and their expectations of the BBC will be particularly valuable.”

Tim Davie said: "It is a great privilege to build on the outstanding legacy of Jenny Abramsky and take on the leadership of a very talented team. This is a special role because of the unique cultural contribution of the BBC's audio and music output, which is highly valued by millions of people.

"As a passionate advocate of radio, I am excited by the challenge of continuing to deliver not only distinctive BBC services but also to support the growth of the medium as a whole across traditional and digital platforms."

Jenny Abramsky leaves the BBC at the end of September, when she will begin chairing the Heritage Lottery Fund.
