Jonathan Wall to replace Moz Dee

BBC Radio 5 Live editor Jonathan Wall has been promoted to commissioning editor at the station, signalling an official replacement for Moz Dee who left to join talkSPORT last year.

Jonathan will have a key role alongside 5 Live controller Adrian Van Klaveren, who took over the post of BBC Radio 5 Live and 5 Live Sports Extra controller in April.

Jonathan has been with the BBC for 15 years. He started as a sports producer at BBC Radio Humberside before working as a producer at 5 Live on programmes including Any Sporting Questions, Sportsweek and 5 Live Sport.

Jonathan Wall says: "It's a fantastic opportunity for me and a real privilege to play an even bigger part in 5 Live's development. We have a strong radio station which is performing well, but my job is to help make it even stronger over the next three years to prepare for the move up to Salford.

"It is an important radio station in the lives of millions of people across the UK. I want to make it even more important to them, and to attract new listeners who we haven't reached yet."

Adrian Van Klaveren says: "Jonathan already has an outstanding track record as a 5 Live editor, producing innovative programmes and helping the station's overall development.

"He will now have a key role alongside me in shaping 5 Live's future and I very much look forward to him bringing his creativity and commitment to 5 Live's senior management team."
