Joe Godwin, the head of the BBC’s children’s news, factual and entertainment is set to become director of children’s at the British public broadcaster, taking up the role vacated by Richard Deverell.
Deverell is set to become chief operating officer of BBC North and Godwin will take responsibility for the pubcaster’s entire kids output from November. Godwin previously produced Blue Peter and was head of original production at Nickelodeon.
This comes as the BBC announced that it would boost spending on kids series by over £25m (€27m) in the next three years.
