A Jewish media mogul was named chairman of the BBC. Michael Grade, 61, a high-profile but controversial figure in British media, will take the top non-executive position at the state broadcaster after he receives royal assent. Grade formerly was head of Britain’s Channel 4, where he was dubbed “pornographer-in-chief” for some of his late-night programming.
