BBC Radio 2’s Lewis Carnie makes TV move

Lewis Carnie, Radio 2’s Head of Programmes, is to take up a temporary role with BBC television working on entertainment projects including Eurovision and Children in Need.

The station says it will appoint an Acting Head of Programmes for the rest of the year to cover his work.

Carnie’s responsibilities for digital sister station 6 Music will be covered by 6 Music’s Editor Paul Rodgers. As Head of Programmes he oversees a number of key areas of the station including recruiting talent and commissioning shows.

Lewis is a former commercial radio man, having been Managing Director of Central FM in Falkirk in the late 90s. He joined Radio 2 ten years ago as Executive Producer for live music and events before becoming Head of Talent and then Head of Programmes. He was Acting Controller of the network following Lesley Douglas’ departure in 2008 before the appointment of Bob Shennan.

Bob said: “I’d like to congratulate Lewis on this hugely exciting opportunity and look forward to welcoming him back to Western House in 2013.”
