An email to staff from David Holdsworth, Controller of English Regions, said: “Rod is looking for a new career direction after recent events at Newsbeat. He will bring loads of experience and wisdom to the job at a time when we are keen to further sharpen our production and journalism. I am sure you will make Rod welcome and I know he intends to get round some stations as soon as possible.”
