BBC’s Mark Damazer has been awarded a CBE for his services towards broadcasting. The former Radio 4 controller was among many in the New Year honours list including the former ITN correspondent Sandy Gall.

Damazer stepped down after 6 years of being in charge of radio 4 to become head of St Peter’s College at Oxford University. He said; “I’m very pleased, but I don’t delude myself. It’s not specifically for me but much more recognition of the role that Radio 4 plays in national public life. I was the fortunate person able to do a bit of choreography, but the real achievement comes from the people who make the programmes and come up with the ideas.”
