Independent Editor Amol Rajan is sometimes well-informed. Sometimes. Here's one of his 2016 predictions from the Politico website.
An unexpectedly comprehensive shake-up of the BBC will be announced in January. The BBC Trust will be discarded as ‘not fit for purpose’. Tony Hall, the current director-general, could move sideways to be chair of the new governing body. James Harding, current director of news and current affairs, will replace Hall as director-general, and the new structure will be sold to Westminster and the public as more corporate than before, with a classic chairman and chief executive arrangement.
