Lorna Clarke appointed Radio2/6 network manager
Lorna Clarke, formerly Head Of Programmes at 1Xtra and most recently the boss of the BBC’s Electric Proms, has been handed a new role as Network Manager for both Radio 2 and the now saved (it seems) BBC 6music.
She will oversee the strategy, finances, and commercial and creative development of the two stations reporting to Radio2/6 controller Bob Shennan, who doesn’t sound like he’s got much left to do. Although a new role, it takes on a lot of the tasks of the old Radio2/6 MD, Antony Bellekom, who left back in March.
The Electric Proms, which have been streamlined somewhat in the last couple of years, will now be overseen by Radio 2/6 music man Jeff Smith.
