Jeremy Howe's first day as the new editor of The Archers

Radio 4

Today we welcome Jeremy Howe into Ambridge as he takes up his post as the new editor. Howe was previously BBC Radio 4’s Commissioning Editor for Drama and Fiction and said of the role:

“Being in charge of Radio 4's drama and fiction has been one of the best jobs in the world. I am thrilled to be asked to do another of the best jobs in the world, to take up the reins of The Archers and to carry on the work of my illustrious predecessors Huw Kennair-Jones, Sean O'Connor & Vanessa Whitburn. It is an honour and privilege to be moving to Ambridge. I just hope that my favourite country walk along the Am hasn't been ruined by Brian's chemical misdemeanours.”
