THE BBC have announced the appointment of Sally Osman as Head of Communications.
Director of Marketing & Communications Matthew Bannister (pictured) said: “Having looked both externally and internally, it was quite clear that she was the outstanding figure in the industry with the qualities we need to lead this important area.”

Steel, currently Chief Press Officer, will be responsible for establishing a central BBC press team which will deal with all reactive and news management issues.
