According to Broadcast, the field is narrowing for job of running putative-floating-super-indie BBC Studios - with candidates falling left right and centre, and Peter Salmon, King of The North and Director BBC England, still standing.

Peter, who bestrides Twickenham and Salford Quays, remains on an excellent existing staff package of £387,900 - higher than all members of the BBC Executive save Lord Hall and Anne Bulford  And, of course Tim Davie, running BBC Worldwide, whose package last year totalled £670k.

Can Peter see a way to improve his deal, frozen since 2009, when and if the Studios are cut free from Auntie's trammels of transparency and comparison ?  And can Lord Hall and McKinsey see a cheaper, simpler way of running England-outside-the-M25 ? What will we learn today ?
