Paralympian Tanni Grey-Thompson joins BBC board

27th March 2017

Paralympic champion and popular conference speaker Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson has been invited to join the BBC board as one of five non-executive members for the new body, which succeeds the BBC Trust and includes senior BBC managers.

"I am delighted to be asked to join the Board of the BBC at this exciting time of challenge and opportunity," she reported to BBC News.

"The world is changing at a rapid pace and competition [in the media] is stronger than ever."


An esteemed ambassador for disabled athletes, Tanni is known for being Britain's most successful paralympic athlete in wheelchair racing who won four gold medals at the 2000 Sydney Paralympic Games. Overall, she has won nine gold medals, four silvers and one bronze in four different Paralympics. 

A respected authority on disability sporting issues and a regular TV and radio broadcast journalist, she is regarded as highly off the track as on it, as cemented by this appointment to the BBC board.
