Yet another Brit with the BBC in his CV gets a gig running news at RTE.
Jon Williams, who rose to boss BBC foreign newsgathering before his departure for the States in 2013, is returning from running ABC's international news operations, to become Managing Director of News and Current Affairs, based in Dublin.
He replaces Kevin Bakhurst, former BBC News channel boss, who has left Dublin for a role in Ofcom. But Kevin was also billed as Deputy Director General - a title not (yet ?) afforded to Jon. Jon (King George V Southport, BA Politics & History, Manchester, Liverpool FC supporter) is, I guess, entering his fifties, but retains youthful looks through running and yoga.
