Jake Kanter has tweeted that the interview process to find a new Director General has finished and an announcement may be imminent.

The two leading contenders are said to be Charlotte Moore, Director of Content, and Tim Davie, CEO of BBC Studios.

External candidates were said to be Will Lewis former CEO of the Wall Street Journal and Doug Gurr of Amazon UK. Jay Hunt doesn't seem to have made the short list.

Will be interested to see how this turns out. I thought Tony Hall did a fairly good job - certainly given the mess the corporation after Entwistle's resignation. He's not get everything right (and certainly BBC News has lost some of its reputation in recent years) but to survive 7 years he did something right.

The main thing I know about Davie was a dreadful interview he did with Sky after Entwhistle had resigned where he walked out mid-interview.

It will be interesting to see what appointments Tim Davie makes as he has no creative or editorial experience and will need close counsel he can rely on. He will also have to deal with a new BBC Chairman when David Clementi steps down next year.

Obviously disappointing for Charlotte Moore, who may inevitably look at her options.

I could see Charlotte Moore going for Tim Davie’s old job at BBC Studios.

What a surprise. Another white man in a suit.

Broadcasting is still very much an old white boys’ club.

A perspective from someone who used to work for the BBC and is often a frequent critic of the corporation for its insularity:
