Public Affairs: C4's Toon heads corporate team

Channel 4 has promoted head of public affairs Nick Toon to head of corporate relations, taking over from John Newbigin, who is leaving at the end of July to 'pursue other media interests'.

Toon continues to oversee PA but will be supported by Jonathan Simon, who has moved from strategy and economics manager to senior manager, corporate relations. Simon said his new role involved communicating C4's remit as a public service broadcaster, and the extension of that remit through new media, to government, regulators, MPs and opinion formers.

The company is launching a free-to-air digital channel, More4, aimed at an older audience than youth offering E4, in the autumn.
