John Whittingdale leaves role as Culture Secretary

Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport John Whittingdale has left his role in a Cabinet reshuffle.

The MP tweeted today saying (it) “Has been a privilege to serve as Culture Secretary. I wish my successor every success & will continue to support creative industries”.

John has only been in the role for 14 months, having been appointed by David Cameron in May 2015 following Sajid Javid‘s move to become Business Secretary. Since then he’s attended many radio industry events, including the Radiocentre conference and the launch of DAB multiplexes.

He’s also supported UKRD’s Local Radio Day project.

News of his replacement is expected later today.
