Debbie Ramsay appointed Radio 1’s Newsbeat Editor

Acting Newsbeat Editor Debbie Ramsay has been made Editor on a full time basis of the Radio 1 and 1Xtra programme.

Debbie was previously Deputy Editor but took over as Acting Editor six months ago when Louisa Compton was promoted to Newsbeat Executive Editor, and Editor of the Victoria Derbyshire TV show.

In an email to all news staff today, Jon Zilkha, Controller, BBC News Channels said: “As acting editor for the last six months, and deputy editor before that, Debbie has been a hugely impressive leader of the Newsbeat team and a passionate advocate for its original journalism. She has a clear vision for how Newsbeat can continue to develop its storytelling for younger audiences, and a determination to ensure those stories reach as many people as possible.”
