Mishal Husain becomes new Today presenter

Mishal Husain is to join the Today programme as presenter. The BBC's head of news programmes, Ceri Thomas and the Observer's Miranda Sawyer, also of Sound Women, discuss the significance and whether we can expect announcements of further changes. Meanwhile, David Penn, MD of research company Conquest, looks at whether the BBC has regained trust that was lost over the Savile revelations.

Ofcom's considering complaints that ITV, C4 and the BBC were wrong to broadcast interviews with radical Islamist cleric Anjem Choudary following the killing of Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich. Former Ofcom partner for content and standards, Stewart Purvis, looks at whether the broadcasters can justify their decision.

Until last month, Chris Blackhurst was editor of The Independent. He now has the role of group content director for that paper as well as the Independent on Sunday, the i and London Evening Standard. What's the future for the papers, with falling circulation and increased cover price for the Independent while the free Standard and 20p i appear to thrive?
