I should have noted ealier my congratulations to Andrew Graystone, who was appointed as the new General Director of the Churches Media Council from a shortlist of seven impressive candidates. Andrew has both theology and teaching qualifications, and he is currently finishing an MA – (Christian Mission and the broadcast media). He has worked on BBC, C4 and ITV output, and in the independent sector as well as for BBC Local Radio. He was a producer for BBC Religion from 1995 -2001(latterly Development Executive). Andrew is an experienced, broadcaster, trainer and consultant and has been involved in politics both at local and national level. He is a member of the Church of the Nazarene, and lives in Manchester. Please pray that Andrew will help the Media Council build its achievements, but also develop our work in new areas. As an representative for the Association of Christians in the Media (ACM), I am confident that he will bring renewed practical encouragement to ACM.
Prayers are with Peter Blackman as he moves to his new role as the first full-time Executive Director of The Voice of the Listener and Viewer (VLV).
