Adam Bullimore is new Breakfast editor
Adam Bullimore is the new editor of BBC Breakfast.
The programme's deputy editor for the past five years, Bullimore oversaw its move from London to Salford in 2012 and was launch editor after the relocation.
During his time on the show he has edited general election programmes and outside broadcasts from Africa and led the special coverage of the 2012 Olympics.
His appointment follows the death of previous editor Alison Ford in July.
Bullimore described it as 'one of the best jobs in tv news'.
'I already know what a fantastic team of people I have around me and I can't wait to start work on some of the ideas I have for the future.''Brilliant journalist'
Mary Hockaday, head of the multimedia newsroom, said the new editor was 'a brilliant journalist with deep knowledge of and affection for BBC Breakfast's audience'.
'Adam wants BBC Breakfast to be a smart BBC News start to the day, blended with engaging guests, audience stories and a real feel for what's happening around the UK, and I know he and the team will deliver the perfect morning mix.'
Bullimore was previously an assistant editor on the BBC News Channel.
Having started his BBC career at Radio Suffolk, he went on to be editor of BBC Look East before moving to London.
