BBC Two and BBC Four controller Kim Shillinglaw is to leave the corporation, after a strategic restructure put Charlotte Moore in control of all TV channels and iPlayer.
Moore will report to Mark Linsey, Acting Director of Television, and will continue to sit on the TV Board. She said that she was "honoured" to lead the channels in her new role.
Mark Linsey said: “Kim has led BBC Two and Four with great creativity, bringing viewers an amazing range of programmes including edgy documentaries like Meet The Ukippers, innovative comedy in Boy Meets Girl, ambitious TV experiments like Are Our Kids Tough Enough? Chinese School and distinctive treats like The Dresser
"She has been an outstanding leader of BBC Two and Four and I will be very sorry to see her go, but am incredibly grateful for her contribution.”
In a wide-ranging interview with the RTS Television Magazine last summer, Shillinglaw said she knew her days at the head of BBC 2 would be 'finite'.
Charlotte Moore will take over her new responsibilities on 25 January.
