BBC’s Vaughan joins Medialink

Broadcasting PR shop and content provider Medialink Worldwide has poached BBC World desk editor Dennis Vaughan to head the agency’s newly centralised broadcasting division.

Vaughan, who has been with the BBC since 2001 and has previously worked at Dow Jones and Associated Press Television News, has taken on the role of head of broadcasting, reporting to Medialink London MD Lucy Hadfield.

Vaughan’s brief involves responsibility for Medialink’s UK-based broadcast teams, which work on media relations and content for the UK, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Head of media relations Sarah Chappell now reports to Vaughan. Medialink has yet to decide whether it will keep the head of production role which is currently vacant.

Vaughan brings 16 years of broadcasting experience, taking one of his first significant roles at Sky News in 1992 where he worked as a programme producer.
