The Week: Media news - Eden McCallum reviews Five

The TV channel Five has appointed the independent consultant Eden McCallum to carry out a review of the business.

In October, Five's chief executive, Dawn Airey, warned that there would be a review to reduce costs, which would force redundancies, only one day after joining the business. Eden McCallum is set to make its recommendations before the end of the year, with changes planned for 2009.
