BBC names nominations committee for Dyke replacement

LONDON - The BBC's board of governors has established a nominations committee to oversee the initial stages of the appointment of Greg Dyke's replacement as director-general.

The committee will be chaired by Dermot Gleeson and will recommend a shortlist of candidates to the full board. It will work closely with Stephen Dando, director of BBC People and, following the appointment of a new chairman, will oversee the final stages of the appointment process.

The vacancy is being advertised between March 7 and 14 with the executive search firm, The Zygos Partnership, running the process.

The other members of the nominations committee are Dame Pauline Neville-Jones, Merfyn Jones and Deborah Bull.
