Royal opening planned for BBC Radio Devon HQ

Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cornwall will officially open the new BBC South West Headquarters in Plymouth next week.

The building, home to BBC Radio Devon, has been under redevelopment for the last two years but is now ready for the Royal visit on 20th July.

The Duchess will be given a guided tour of the new BBC South West Headquarters by the Head of Regional and Local Programming for the BBC, Leo Devine. The tour will incorporate the BBC Radio Devon studios, BBC Spotlight studio, and the BBC Newsroom that houses the region’s documentary, investigative and digital journalism teams. The Duchess will unveil a commemorative plaque to mark the official opening.

Leo Devine, Head of Regional and Local Programming, for BBC South West said: “We are so honoured that Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cornwall has accepted our invitation to open the new BBC South West Headquarters. As a team we are incredibly proud of this major project which reinforces our commitment to the region’s audience as the biggest national broadcaster in the area.”

BBC Radio Devon is home to Gordon Sparks, Simon Bates, David FitzGerald, Janet Kipling, Matt Woodley and Pippa Quelch each weekday.
