The Government today extended the term of Ofcom Chairman Dame Patricia Hodgson for a further year until 2018.
Dame Patricia was appointed Chairman of Ofcom for three years from April 2014.
The one-year extension will ensure that Dame Patricia remains as Chairman to oversee the conclusions of Ofcom’s Strategic Review of Digital Communications and the integration of Ofcom’s new regulatory duties for the BBC. Ofcom is set to take on broader regulation of the BBC next year.
