Ofcom hunts for C4 chairman

Ofcom has appointed headhunter Zygos Partnership to search for a successor to Channel 4 chairman Luke Johnson, whose tenure ends in January 2010 after six years. An ad for the job will be placed next month, and the watchdog hopes to have someone in place in time for Johnson’s departure. State-owned Channel 4 is still in discussions with the government regarding its funding post-2012.
