Channel 4: Seven cities in the running to be new national HQ
Channel 4 has revealed the shortlist of seven cities and regions that could be the home of its new national HQ. The company wants to move 300 of its 800 staff out of London to a national headquarters and two "Creative hubs". The seven shortlisted locations could house either the national HQ or a creative hub. More than 30 bids were submitted from around the UK. Channel 4 currently has 30 staff based outside London - 25 salespeople in Manchester and five employees in Glasgow. It will have a new studio, which has "The potential to be a base for daily programmes", said Channel 4. The partial relocation is part of Channel 4's plan, 4 All the UK, which is described as the biggest structural change to the channel since it launched 35 years ago.
