Radio 1’s Ben Cooper to run BBC Asian Network

Ben Cooper will run the BBC Asian Network in addition to Radio 1 & 1 Xtra, as Bob Shennan moves to Director of Radio and Music from today.

In addition, Lewis Carnie will be in charge of BBC Radio 2, and Paul Rodgers will run 6 Music, both on a temporary basis.

Emailing radio staff this morning, Bob said: “We have come a long way over the past few years on all platforms and we have exciting plans underway to deliver even more success in the future. We have a real opportunity to bolster our radio stations, attract new audiences and harness the global technological revolution. I know that if we work together we can build an even bigger, better BBC Radio.”

The job for Controller of BBC Radio 2/6 Music will be advertised internally and externally.
