Bedell clicks from BBC to ITV exec post
EmptyBBC controller of entertainment commissioning Elaine Bedell has been poached by rival ITV.
The BBC veteran will take over one of the biggest jobs in U.K. commercial television, becoming the network's director of entertainment and comedy, with oversight of such shows as "X Factor" and "I'm a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here!"
Replacing Paul Jackson, who is returning to production, Bedell will be reunited with ITV director of TV, channels and online Peter Fincham, with whom she worked at BBC1. (partialdiff)
