The BBC’s head of news and current affairs, James Harding, has quit to launch a new media agency.
Harding, who has run the corporation’s news department for four years was considered the future head of the corporation. Speaking on the issue, he said there are stories that the BBC “can’t, and probably shouldn’t, do” and he looked forward to producing journalism with “a clear point of view”.
Praising the corporation’s news agenda in terms of coverage of politics, business and the society he said: ‘Even when we’re pedalling into the wind, life at the BBC is rewarding and worthwhile. I know I will enjoy the chance to do some more journalism of my own and, at such a critical time, I’m seriously excited about the prospect of building a new venture in news’. He will leave the corporation on January 1.
