ITN Productions hires in Leeds
ITN Productions in the UK has made two new hires at its fledgling regional base in the Yorkshire city of Leeds.
Caroline Short is joining the factual specialist as an executive producer and Gorana Jelovina will take on the role of development assistant producer.
Short has 20 years’ experience working on news, current affairs and factual content and most recently launched series including BBC daytime show For Love or Money and BBC3 fixed-rig series Sex on the Couch.
Jelovina, meanwhile, joins ITN Productions from her role at BBC Studios as development assistant producer on The One Show.
Both will take up their new positions from July.
ITN Productions opened its Leeds office, complete with what it has called state-of-the-art editing facilities, as part of its regional expansion plans earlier this year.
Ian Rumsey, ITN Production’s director of TV production, said Short and Jelovina “are going to help us establish a real regional presence, enabling us to make programmes that truly reflect the nation, and their appointments are an indication of how serious we are about securing business and making programmes outside London.”
