Large Comeback To ITV

Mike Large will make a comeback to ITV as head of media relations after less than a year at PR company Hill & Knowlton.
The former ITV head of programme publicity will rejoin the broadcaster as part a reorganisation of communications operation by group corporate affairs director, Mark Gallagher.
Large's role will entail deputising for Ruth Settle, director of corporate communications, who was promoted last month to fill the vacancy that will be left when Jim Godfrey, director of corporate affairs, steps down to set up his own PR agency.
Gallagher's reorganisation will also see Kate Smith, currently ITV press manager channels and commercial, promoted to become head of press for ITV Channels.
Settle commented: "I'm delighted to be bringing Mike Large back to ITV and bringing in talent like Andrew Sholl to join ITV's corporate team.
"It is also great news that Kate Smith is stepping up to the challenge with a well deserved promotion. We are building the strongest PR team in UK broadcasting at ITV and I hope to make further announcements very soon."
ITV is currently recruiting heads of press for its commercial, financial and consumer divisioins.
