Jane Hill named BBC Radio Leicester boss

Former Lincs FM group director of programming Jane Hill has been appointed as the Editor of BBC Radio Leicester.

She takes over from Kate Squire who has left the Midlands to take charge of BBC Radio Manchester.

Jane spent more than a decade heading up programmes for Lincs and before that spent many years as a journalist in local radio. More recently she has worked as a novelist and stand-up comedian and has also done cover shifts at BBC Radio Leicester over the last year.

Jane told us: “I’ve grown to love BBC Radio Leicester in the time I’ve worked there as a journalist and newsreader, and I’m thrilled to be able to lead the station into the future. BBC Radio Leicester’s a great station with a wonderful team of highly committed staff, and I’m really looking forward to working with them as Editor.”

Emma Agnew, acting Head of Regional and Local Programmes for the East Midlands, says: “I’m delighted that we have an editor with the experience and background of Jane to lead BBC Radio Leicester into the future, along with the management team they will provide great leadership for a great station.”

Jane will take up her new post at the station from next month.
