Kavanagh heads BBC3

Damian-KavanaghThe BBC has confirmed that Damian Kavanagh will leave his role as controller of daytime to become the digital controller of the new-look BBC Three ahead of its move online.

Kavanagh has overseen the proposals to turn the channel into an online-only service, revealing plans to “re-invent the channel for the digital age and take risks with ideas, talent and technology.” He will commence his new role in the new year.

Danny Cohen, BBC director of television, commented: “Damian did a brilliant interview in a very competitive field. His background at CBBC means he has great experience already with young audiences and their love of digital content.”
