YouView appoints interim chair

UK connected TV platform YouView has appointed TalkTalk Group chairman, Sir Charles Dunstone, as its interim chairman.

The move follows the departure earlier this week of IT magnate and The Apprentice star Lord Sugar, who stepped down from his role as non-executive chairman at YouView.

Dunstone co-founded The Carphone Warehouse in 1989, launched TalkTalk in 2003, and has been involved with YouView since TalkTalk became a shareholder in the service 2009. YouView’s other backers are BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, BT and television infrastructure firm Arqiva.

YouView said it will now begin a search for a permanent non-exec chairman.
