The Week: People News - Keating tipped for BBC1 job

The BBC2 controller, Roly Keating, has been tipped as a likely replacement for Peter Fincham, the former BBC1 controller, who resigned on Friday after the release of a damning report on the BBC and RDF Media's handling of the A Year With The Queen affair.

Peter Barron, the editor of Newsnight; Jane Tranter, the controller of BBC Fiction; Peter Bazalgette, the former Endemol creative director; Paul Jackson, ITV's comedy and entertainment chief; Alison Sharman, ITV's director of factual and daytime; Danny Cohen, the BBC3 controller; Simon Shaps, ITV's programme chief; and Lorraine Heggessey, the former BBC1 controller, are also being linked with the role.
