Los Angeles, November 20, : , After more than twenty years, Andrew Marr has resigned from BBC Network after a corporate crackdown against impartiality.On Friday, Andrew Marr, the host of BBC One’s ‘Andrew Marr Show,’ a popular political program on Sunday mornings on Sunday, announced that he was joining Global Media, where he will present and continue writing for different programs, as well as papers, according to Variety.com.
Marr posted a Twitter statement saying that “after 21 years I have decided it was time to leave the BBC”
He said, “l will be leaving behind many wonderful memories and great colleagues.” However, I will be moving to Global in the new year to present and write political and cultural programs and write for newspapers.
“I believe British politics will go through an even more turbulent decade.I, like I said, want to get my voice back.
Since 1996, I’ve been on the Andrew Marr Show every Sunday morning.That is 16 years of experience and probably enough for anyone!
Global has a number of British radio stations, such as Capital FM and LBC.The company stated that it has made an exclusive deal with Marr and will present a new, opinion-led show on LBC, as well as Classic FM’s classical music station Classic FM.GlobalPlayer also hosts a weekly podcast.
Marr will write regular columns for the LBC site.
Marr spoke out about his plans for Global and said that the move gives him “a new freedom” to produce fast-paced, regular political journalism on LBC without any filter in my completely own voice.
Marr noted that Classic FM will allow him to “explore my passion for classical music and cultural generally with some unexpected guests”.
The host exclaimed, “I feel like I’m joining an exciting young company that is hungryly ambitious.”
Marr is leaving BBC as director general Tim Davie, who leads efforts to eliminate biases at the company.
Last month, a 10-point plan was published “to develop and protect staff and increase output across all BBC services.”
Davie’s desire for impartiality has been criticized.Questions remain about the guidelines and who set them.
Would speaking out against racism be included in impartial coverage, for example?
Marr had hinted that earlier in the year he was becoming frustrated by his employer’s restrictions on personal politics.He told a Glasgow book festival, “lose your job,” if he shared his personal politics with them.
According to newspaper The Times, Marr stated that there are many benefits of working for the BBC.
He stated in an interview that he wanted to use his voice once again.
Following Marr’s tweets the BBC issued a quick statement.Director general Tim Davie praised the former personality as “a brilliant presenter and journalist during his time at BBC.”
He leaves behind a legacy that is unsurpassed in terms of his outstanding interviews and groundbreaking programs.”We wish him luck for the next chapter,” Davie said.
Fran Unsworth (director of news and current affairs), who will be leaving Beeb early in 2022, described Marr as a “firm favourite with our audience.”
Marr’s departure comes at a time when the BBC is preparing to reshuffle its senior news crew.
According to The Guardian, Laura Kuenssberg is the Politics Editor at The Broadcaster.She has one the highest-profile positions in the company.
