ITV Anglia head of news switches to the BBC

The head of news for ITV’s Anglia region, David Jennings, is joining the BBC as the head of region for East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.

Jennings replaces David Lloyd, the former LBC managing director who spent about a month in the job before returning to commercial radio.

He takes up the new post in September and will be responsible for BBC Look North, BBC Humberside, BBC Lincolnshire and the local online offering.

Jennings began his journalism career in 1985 as a trainee on the Eastern Daily Press in Norwich, working as a reporter and sub-editor.
