On the nest

Congratulations to Sam Hodges, currently running communications for BBC Television, who's about to jog down Regent Street to Twitter's Piccadilly HQ.

Sam (BA English, Lancaster) joined the BBC as a temp on the IT Help Desk in Pebble Mill ("I knew nothing about computers"). From there, he inveigled his way into cover shifts with the press team, and thus a star was born.

His career has moved between the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Toby Carveries, and "freelance". As the Guardian notes, his Twittering of good overnight viewing figures has been a daily entertainment. Unsurprisingly, his recent follows include at least a dozen Twitter names I can spot...
