Sixer ?

"We had a top class field to choose from but Gary's vision and ambition for where he wants to take BBC Scotland News in future was crystal clear."

Thus BBC Controller Scotland, Ken MacQuarrie, on the appointment of 54-year-old Gary Smith, (Kelvinside Acadaemy, Glasgow University and Cardiff post-grad), as Head of News at BBC Scotland. Gary has been in the Westminster bubble for most of his media career, with Channel 4 and the BBC's Millbank operation. More recently he's been James Harding's UK News Editor.  (Derek Bateman tipped Gary three weeks ago.)

So BBC staff, politicians, and viewers north of the border will look forward to an articulation of this crystal clear vision asap. Does it include a Scottish Six ?
