Lord Tony Hall is BBC’s New Director General

3rd April 2013

Former Chief Executive of the Royal Opera House, Lord Tony Hall is preparing to begin his position as the new Director General of the BBC.

He is taking over from George Entwistle, who left after the Jimmy Saville scandal was uncovered.

Lord Tony is aware that he has taken on this role after a difficult period for the BBC.  Following the recent scandal, he wants the company to learn from the mistakes made in the past and continue to improve its service to viewers.

He stated that ‘We are now winning back trust, something which will always be the most precious commodity for any organisation. We must never take it for granted.’

During his speech Lord Tony, focused on the BBC’s staff and their importance in helping the company to reach its potential, saying that he would enable staff “to do the best work of your lives”.

He plans to shape the future of the BBC by listening to its audiences and partners, as it moves towards its centenary year in 2022.
