Mark Mardell has announced on his blog that he will be replaced by Gavin Hewitt. Not who I expected to be chosen, but he does have lots of reporting experience I suppose.

My successor here, Gavin Hewitt, will be writing this blog from September. He's covered the most important stories around the world for the last few years as the Ten's special correspondent and before that he was a long-time Panorama reporter, so he'll bring a great depth of experience and knowledge to the job. I wish him all the best. If he enjoys it half as much as I have, he's in for a great time.
I echo your comments wholeheartedly, Stitch. Not who I expected, but surely carries enough experience to just carry it off nicely!

I honestly anticipated Jonathan Charles would move back to the Europe office.
