C4 "Up North"
Oct 31st, 2018, 3:32pm
Channel Four has decided that Leeds shall be the new location of the national HQ.

Here is the Channel 4 press release, in which they describe their decision-making process.

"Channel 4ís Chief Executive, Alex Mahon and the Channel 4 Board have today confirmed that that Leeds will be the location of its new National HQ and Bristol and Glasgow will be the locations of its two new Creative Hubs.

.......Following discussions between Channel 4 and ITN, it has also been decided that a major new Channel 4 News hub will be established in Leeds, following the decision for Channel 4 to be located there in a new building including a studio with the capability to regularly co-anchor the programme."

Tim Smith (Head BBC Yorkshire and Lincolnshire) tweeted:-
"Great news about Channel 4.
My view;
- should drive economic growth in Yorkshire
- should boost tv indies here
- should benefit audiences here- more Yorkshire on tv
- helps media professionals and future talent. With C4, BBC North etc perhaps less need to move to London for work."

Spencer Stokes (BBC Leeds Business Correspondent) said:-
"200 jobs in Leeds, a further 600 spread between London, Bristol and Glasgow."
