Lorraine Heggessey to leave BBC One

BBC One controller Lorraine Heggessey is quitting the corporation to work for an independent television company, reports BBC News.

Heggessey will leave later this year to take over at top independent company Talkback Thames.

There's an assessment of her legacy at the BBC in today's Media Guardian (free registration required).

Update: BBC News outlines the favourites to replace Heggessey, with Jane Tranter, the controller of BBC drama commissioning, the favourite.
