According to a report at BBCi, a new chairman to replace outgoing BBC Chairman Gavyn Davies, who resigned in January, has been picked and will be announced in the next few weeks. Michael Grade, the former BBC controller who was responsible for canceling Doctor who in the mid-1980's, has been widely rumored as one of the contenders; however, as has been explained to us, the job of BBC Chairman has little to do with actual decisions on content on the channels themselves, and Grade, while possibly one of the leads, is not the only contender.
