In an email to BBC staff earlier this morning, BBC Director-General Mark Thompson announced that Roger Mosey, the BBC's current Director of London 2012, is to be appointed Acting Director of BBC Vision.
As you know, on Monday September 17th George Entwistle becomes the next Director-General of the BBC. George and I have agreed that it makes sense for him to step down as Director of Vision later in August so that he can concentrate on preparation for the DG handover. I'm pleased to tell you that Roger Mosey has accepted our joint invitation to become Acting Director of BBC Vision. He will start on Monday 20 August. I'm also pleased to tell you that Dave Gordon will take on Roger's role as Director, London 2012 for the duration of the Paralympics. Dave will also start his new role on Monday 20 August. The process of making a permanent appointment as Director, Vision will begin later in the autumn.
All the best,
BBC Press Office
