1Xtra network loses its head

Lorna Clarke is relinquishing her role as Head of Programmes at BBC 1Xtra to focus solely on the Electric Proms. Clarke currently combines her 1Xtra role with the position of the Proms’ Festival Director.

1Xtra Controller Andy Parfitt, who recently expanded his own role within the BBC said: "Lorna has delivered a much stronger 1Xtra, successfully introducing a new schedule alongside a number of significant events. She is a surefooted leader and I wish her every success for the future."

Clarke added: "I'm proud of what has been achieved in my time at 1Xtra. The network is in good health, and is achieving a new record reach of 600,000 listeners a week."

As Festival Director, BBC Electric Proms, she is responsible for the delivery of the multi-platform live music event which broadcasts across a number of networks including, BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, BBC Asian Network and BBC Local Radio.

She will leave 1Xtra in March 2009.
