BBC Boss Tony Hall Lands At U.K.’s National Gallery – Variety
The news, which has not yet been confirmed, follows Hall’s announcement earlier today that he is to depart the corporation after seven years as director general. BBC chairman David Clementi will begin a search for Hall’s replacement, advertising to both internal and external candidates.
Hall’s move to the National Gallery sees the executive return to the arts world. Prior to joining the BBC, Hall served as chief executive of the Royal Opera House.
Frontrunners for the role include BBC director of content Charlotte Moore and BBC Studios boss Tim Davie.
More to come.
