New Editor announced for Today Programme

Former Editor of The World at One Jamie Angus will be the new Editor of The Today Programme on BBC Radio 4, replacing Ceri Thomas.

bbcradio4_275Jamie is currently acting Deputy Editor of Newsnight and will start his role at Today in September. Ceri left the role last year to take up responsibility of Deputy Director of News.

He’s previously held a number of senior editorial roles in television and radio, working in English and in BBC language services.

He says: “It’s an enormous privilege to be asked to do this job – I worked on the programme for my first eight years in the BBC, and have been listening to it for as long as I can remember being a radio listener. At the heart of Radio 4 and of BBC News, Today is central to what the BBC offers its audiences. I am delighted to be taking on this job at a time when the programme is in such strong form, with record audiences and recent awards success, and I’m looking forward to working with the team and our presenters.”

The BBC has also appointed Ian Katz, Deputy Editor of The Guardian, as Editor of BBC’s Newsnight.

Fran Unsworth, Acting Director of News says: “I’m delighted to be welcoming Ian to the BBC and to announce Jamie as the new Editor of the Today programme. Their journalistic pedigree speaks for itself. They will bring to two of Britain’s most influential news and current affairs programmes all the judgement, news sense and innovation we need.”

It is presented by John Humphrys, Jim Naughtie, Sarah Montague, Evan Davis and Justin Webb
