Damazer takes over Radio 4 & BBC 7

Mark Damazer has been appointed Controller of BBC Radio 4 and BBC 7, succeeding Helen Boaden, who is now Director of BBC News. Speaking after the news was announced on Friday, Damazer said:
"Being Controller of Radio 4 is the best job in broadcasting and I am privileged to be given the opportunity of working with so many talented and creative people.

"Radio 4 is in terrific shape and my challenge is to cherish it, sustain it and make sure it remains the home for intelligence, flair and wit.

"BBC 7 has already made a name for itself and I hope to see it become a must for those who value the BBC's storehouse of drama and comedy."
Damazer's previous job was as Deputy Director of BBC News.
