BBC Radio 3 staff restructure planned following new music editor’s departure

by -

BBC Radio 3 is restructuring its editorial team as the station’s new and specialist music editor, Andrew Kurowski, prepares to leave the broadcaster.

Kurowski will step down in a few months’ time, alongside Adam Gatehouse, whose editor role includes the broadcaster’s lunchtime concerts and New Generation Artists, a scheme to nurture young talent. Both have chosen voluntary redundancy.

A spokeswoman for the BBC said the work of Kurowski and Gatehouse will be “redistributed amongst the remaining editorial team”.

Responding to concerns from composers that their departures signal an end to the support of new music and new talent by the BBC, she added: “BBC Radio 3 remains committed to its distinctive range and quality of programming, including new music.”

The BBC also said it had also recently appointed Jeremy Evans as a new editor. He will join Radio 3 later this month.
