BBC ups Charlotte Moore to content chief
UK pubcaster the BBC has promoted Charlotte Moore to the corporation’s chief content officer and made her a member of the board.
In her new role, Moore, who was among the four hopefuls vying for the BBC’s director-general job earlier this year, will be the senior leader for BBC content and audiences across all genres and platforms, with the exception of news and nations and regions.
Moore will be responsible for commissioning across all BBC network TV channels and its VOD iPlayer service, as well as multi-platform commissioning and production for all children’s and education content.
In addition, she will oversee radio commissioning and production for all 10 national radio networks and streaming audio service BBC Sounds, as well as the BBC Proms and orchestras.
Moore was the only woman among the leading four contenders for the top BBC job, which eventually went to Tim Davie, after the incumbent Tony Hall surprised the industry by announcing he would be stepping down earlier this year.
Prior to taking on this new role, Moore was director of BBC content and controller of BBC One. She was responsible for the creative vision across the portfolio of channels, BBC iPlayer and genres and took on oversight of BBC Sport.
Joining the corporation in 2006 as commissioning editor of documentaries, Moore also previously served in roles including controller of TV channels and iPlayer and acting controller of BBC daytime television.
Prior to joining the BBC, Moore was director of contemporary factual at IWC Media.
Welcoming Moore to the board, BBC Chairman David Clementi said that she had “made a huge success of bringing audiences to our television portfolio – resulting in record breaking figures for iPlayer and ensuring the BBC can reach audiences beyond the critical linear channels.”
