New boss for BBC’s Ques­tion Time

The Press and Journal (Inverness) - - NEWS - BY FRANCESCA GOSLING

Hilary O’Neill has been ap­pointed as the next ed­i­tor of BBC One po­lit­i­cal de­bate show Ques­tion Time.

Al­ready deputy ed­i­tor for the BBC News At Six and 10 bul­letins, Ms O’Neill will be adding the broad­caster’s flag­ship pol­i­tics pro­gramme, hosted by David Dim­bleby, to a CV that in­cludes edit­ing pro­grammes on the mi­grant cri­sis, the US elec­tion and the death of David Bowie.

She said: “Ques­tion Time is the best, high­est-pro­file and most en­ter­tain­ing pub­lic de­bate pro­gramme in the UK – it’s a great hon­our to be join­ing the team.

“In these tu­mul­tuous po­lit­i­cal times it’s never been more im­por­tant to hold politi­cians to ac­count, and to hear di­rectly from peo­ple about the is­sues they care about the most.

“The more opin­ions and cross-ex­am­i­na­tion the bet­ter.”
