Big job

Two weeks since the bombshell of Lord Hall's resignation, and there's no sign of a job advert or recruitment company to find his replacement as BBC Director-General.

Of course, Tone got the gig after a simple chat with the then Chairman Lord Patten (Lardy Lord to Tony's Lordy Lord). The previous incumbent was George Entwistle, hired after a three-month hunt, at £189,000, conducted by Dom Loehnis of Eghon Zender. Part of that money was spent interviewing BBC big-wigs (including Entwistle) to draw up a role specification. 

It might need alteration if they're to use it again. "Commercial acumen" and "Cross-platform experience" were both 'nice to have', rather than  'must have'.
