Mark Lawson for Radio 4 job?

The race for top spot at Radio 4 continues with Mark Lawson added to the list of potential candidates.

The presenter of art series Front Row was apparently interviewed by the BBC last week to take over from Mark Damazer in September.

MediaGuardian also reports that the recruitment process is still in an early stage with candidates waiting to see if their names would be put forward to the next round of interviews.

Lawson told them “"There are all sorts of rumours going round the BBC so who knows what the truth is. I am not going to say anything at all about it."

Names already rumoured to be in the running include Ceri Thomas, Editor of the Today programme; Newsnight Editor Peter Rippon and the former Newsnight editor Peter Baron; and Roly Keating who leads the BBC’s archive initiative.
