RTE's Eddie Doyle Named BBC NI's New Head of Content
03 Jan 2018 :
Eddie Doyle
He leaves RTE where he held the role of Head of Comedy, Talent Development & Music. He replaces Steve Carson, who recently joined BBC Scotland as head of multi-platform commissioning.

In his new post in Belfast, Eddie will play a key role in all in-house productions of factual, entertainment, comedy, music and events.

Peter Johnston, Director BBC NI, said: “Eddie has great creative energy, wide-ranging editorial experience and a genuine passion for this industry.

“He will bring enthusiasm and vision to his teams and lead the way into an exciting new era for us. He’ll be a great asset to the BBC and, indeed, the wider creative sector in Northern Ireland.”

Eddie Doyle was involved in the commissioning of a wide variety of shows including Prime Time Investigates, Mrs Brown’s Boys, Damo & Ivor, Briget & Eamon, Can’t Cope Won’t Cope, Nowhere Fast and The School.

Mr Doyle said: “I’m thrilled to be taking on the role of head of content production at such an exciting time in broadcasting.

“BBC Northern Ireland is full of outstandingly talented and committed people, and it is a real privilege to be joining Peter and his team, in seizing the opportunities ahead.”
