BBC Media Relations Appoints New Boss

There's to be a new face at the helm of the BBC's Press and Media office.
Reporting to Ed Williams, BBC Director of Communications, Paul Mylrea will take up his new post as BBC Head of Press & Media Relations in April.
He will replace Donald Steel who will assume his role as Associate Fellow of the BBC Academy and Chief Communications Adviser.
Paul will be responsible for the BBC's overall approach to press and media relations, leading the BBC Press Office and providing strategic and editorial leadership of key issues playing out through the press.
He will also be the BBC's official spokesman and additionally he will be a member of the Communications Steering Group chaired by Ed Williams and will play an active role in the leadership and development of communications across the BBC.
"Paul is a terrific hire for the BBC," said Ed Williams. "The combination of 20 years at Reuters, along with proven experience at the hard end of public sector communications, is excellent preparation for leading media relations at the BBC.
"Paul has a significant contribution to make, and I am looking forward to working with him closely."
On Donald Steel, Ed Williams said: "I want to thank Donald Steel for leading the BBC's media relations for almost ten years.
"He has done so with great integrity and charm and I know, although there have been tough conversations along the way, he has made many friends in the press.
"Donald will continue to play a role both through the BBC Academy and as Chief Communications Advisor to me."
Paul Mylrea commented: "The BBC has a unique relationship with both the public and the media and faces the challenge of constant and increased scrutiny.
"This is a fantastic opportunity and I look forward to working with Ed and his team at the BBC."
