Bruce Malcolm is to lead the BBC's coverage of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

His role as head will be similar to that of Roger Mosey for London 2012, with a similarly broad remit.

Malcolm, currently BBC Scotland's chief operating officer, will take an overview of all BBC activity relating to the Games, including coverage of the multi-sport event as well as the cultural festival that will run prior to the competition which takes place from July 23 to August 3 2014.

He will advise the director general and all the BBC's Commonwealth Games production teams in the run-up to the event.

'Positive news'

Malcolm joined BBC Scotland in 1993, running the finance function for Resources, Scotland before becoming commercial manager.

He was head of resources, operations, before taking up his current position in 2006.

Ken MacQuarrie, BBC Scotland director, described the appointment as 'very positive news for Scotland'.

'The appointment to this pan-UK role is indicative of the BBC's commitment to deliver first-class output for Glasgow 2014, building on the huge success of our London 2012 coverage.'

Malcolm, who was responsible for the delivery of BBC Scotland's Pacific Quay headquarters, will begin his new job immediately.
